Charles Dullea Starts EishthYear as Chief 



Bv Opie L. Warner 



Oil January 5th, 1914, Chief Charles W. Dullea was 
sworn in as a patrolman in the San Francisco Police De- 
partment hy the late Chief of Police David A. White. 

Today the thirty-three years our present chief has been 
on his toes to stem crime in his native city would appear to 
have been about that many months. We find our chief a 
sprightly specimen of vigorous manhood and we venture a 




Chief Charles W. Dullea 

bet that not one person in a hundred would place him in 
the fifty-year class. 

On February 16th. 1940, Charles W. Dullea became 
Chief of Police. On that occasion we wrote that a man 
of his courage and his ability in every phase of his chosen 
profession would hold the position of chief for a long 
term. Seven years have passed since that prediction — and 
each year finds Chief Dullea becoming more and more an 
outstanding peace officer in his native city, in our State of 
California, and throughout the nation. 

In a report just issued by the Grand Jury of the City 



and County of San Francisco for the year 1946 we find 
it stated : 

"San Francisco has an e.xcellent police force with pro- 
gressive policies and good leadership. We cannot recom- 
mend too highly the ability and experience of the Chief of 
Police, who, as the chief executive officer, is securing maxi- 
mum efficiency of operation." 

"It is interesting to learn that the principles of organiza- 
tion, as applied in the San Francisco Police Department, 
were studied by the Army and Navy during the war, and 
are now being used in the Pacific Theaters of Operation 
by the military government in occupied areas." 

For almost twenty years Chief Dullea has been a mem- 
ber of the International Association of Chiefs of Pol'ce — 
and has ne\ er failed to attend as an active committee mem- 
ber of the annual conventions of that organization. From 
the assembled chiefs his papers on various police problems 
always received acclaim. He will be elected president of 
the lACP at this year's annual meeting. 

San Francisco is becoming an immenre city. But, with 
all the strikes, parades, conventions, and upheavals of pap- 
ulation due to war conditions the San Francisco Police 
Department has functioned as successfully as if everything 
were normal. And this fine job of policing has been accom- 
plished with over 200 less police strength than our Charter 
allows, and more than 200 in the armed forces during 
the war. 

Our Chief of Police is one of the nation's outstanding 
examples in police circles of a man who has come up from 
the ranks. 

In the San Francisco Police Department his personal 
record is one of which any man wearing a police uniform 
might well be proud. On several occasions he has been 
cited for meritorious service for the capture of auto ban- 
dits, holdup men and such as would use an automobile as 
part of their equipment in law violation. The present Chief 
of Police of San Francisco always took the lead where 
danger was thickest — the arrest of the Stevens gang of 
bank robbers, on Sherman Island, in the Sacramento River 
sloughs, is just one instance of a brave leader leading his 
posse to success against mighty odds. 

His promotions in the San Francisco Police Department 



Page 4 



POLICE AND PEACE OFFICERS' JOURNAL 



February, 1947 



do not at all savor of the Horatio Alger type of success. 
The Chief just forged a^ead. Codes of Civil Procedure, 
the City Charter, the Penal Code, the Police, Health and 
Fire Ordinances, First Aid to the Injured, the U. S. Drill 
Manual — all these were pet literature to the ambitious 
ex-Marine whose motto has always been "excelsior.' 

The Chief is a firm believer in the rule that you get only 
what you strive for. He also believes in doing a thing 
right away. For the cle\cn ycnrs he sprnt as Captain of 
Inspectors he always impresred on his Inspectors the fact 
that: "Time is of the essence." He never failed to give 
thanks to the men of his bvireau who showed initiative even 
if their best efforts were unavailing. 

Due to the fact that he, from the day he be;ame a patrol- 
man, always looked on policing as a profession, he prided 
himself on the fact that he knew as much abnut policing as 
he could learn from any and all books concerning the en- 
forcement of the law. Consequently when examinations 
for promotion came along he was amply reidy to top the 
list. I personally know many commissioned and non-com- 
m ssioned members of the department who have those posi- 
tions because of the personal encouragement given them 
by our present chief. 

Promotions came rapidly to Chief Dullea, he having 
become a corporal April 13, 1921 ; a sergeant April 2, 
1923 ; a lieutenant No\ ember 19, 1923 ; a captain January 
2, 1929; and Captain of Inspectors September 3, 1929. 
The title of Captain of Inspectors he held with much 
honor to himself and to the San Francisco Police Depart- 
ment until h's appointment as Chief of the San Francisco 
Police Department on February 16, 1940. 

When Captain of Inspectors our Chief rarely issued 
written instructions because he believed that a personal 
talk to his men in the "show up" room on the top floor of 
the Hall of Justice once in a while would produce better 
results. In this belief his men came through, no matter 
how acute the sanation was. San Francisco was the one 
"white spot" in the na ion during the racketeering regime 
— the boys ran wild in the effete east and in the so-called 
Middle West during thise halcyon days but they could not 
gain a foothold in the Citv by the Golden Gate. 

If the Chief has any hobby or hobbies they would cer- 
tainly come under the head of efficiency. He is a splendid 
athlete. He never overlooks an opportimity to enjoy ocean 
swimming and handball. He has had built — mostly by 
police officers on their off hours — the finest p'stol range in 
the whole v,'orld. Probably there will never be a better 
trained police organiza'ion in the matter of shooting tech- 
nique than San Franc'sco has under the leadership of a 
Ch'ef who says: "You may have to fire at a man only 
once in your whole police career, but when you do, your 
bullet has to hit the mark." 

During his thirty-three years as a police officer Charles 
^V. Dullea, has, through his pleasing personality, his abso- 
lute police efficiency, honesty and his square dealing, en- 
deared himself to the entire membership of the San Fran- 
cisco Polce Department, the members of which, individu- 
ally and collectively, hope he will remain for other seven- 
year periods the head of "San Francisco's Finest." 



LITTLE GIRL GIVES ALL HER CASH 
BECAUSE SHE WAS GRATEFUL 

On December 20 a telephone message was received 
at the Park Police Station. It asked that a Police Officer 
be sent to 1177 Stanyan, as ther^ was a young lady who 
desired to make a cash contribution to the Police De- 
partment. 

Officers Bernard J. Gallagher and Richard Reed were 
detailed to make the call. 

When they arrived at the given address they were 
met by an attractive young miss by the name of Karen 
Aiken, 1. ^-year-old daughter of Joseph Aiken. 

She handed the officers a box which contained $7.77 
in pennies. 

She said she would like to give the money to the police 
to he used for children of police officers killed or injured 
in action in the performance of their dangerous duties. 

She said she got the idea while her father was recover' 
ing from a recent accident, suffering a fractured hip and 
other injuries, and said her father hid received such 
efficient and courteous service from the police that she 
wished to express her and her father's appreciation in 
this manner. 

Miss Aiken had saved the pennies for Christmas shop- 
ping, but she determined to use this holiday money to 
express her feelings for the fine v,;ay licr father had been 
treated by members of the Police Department. 

She is a student at St. Agnes Parochial school and 
Officers Gallagher and Reed gratefully thanked her for 
the gift. They had the money forwarded to the property 
clerk which turned it over to the Police Widows' and 
Orphans" Aid Association. Secretary Thomas Fitzpatrick 
of the Association, at the request of President Henry 
Smith, sent a letter of appreciation to Miss Aiken, ex- 
pressing their happiness in receiving such a thoughtful gift. 

Kinda gets under one's skin, doesn't it, to have a little 
girl make such a gesture in expressing how much the 
kindness of police officers meant to her when one she 
loves so dearly was needing such kindness. Police Officers 
of this state have many such acts of kindnesses marked 
down to them, but seldom do their acts receive such 
recognition as that of little Miss Aiken. 



S. F. P. D. ON 44-HOUR WEEK 

Last month the members of the San Francisco Police 
Department went on a 44-hour week service, as voted 
last November by the people of this city. 

In putting the shorter working day into operation the 
administrators of the Department worked out a very 
simple formula. Most men, commissioned officers, non- 
commissioned officers and patrolmen were scheduled to 
work six eight-hour days rne week and the next week 
work five eight-hour days. 

The change was made without throwing out the efficient 
working of the department's personnel, and everybody is 
enjoying the four hours extra time ofF.

Police Commissioners Three -Year Record 



By Opie L. Warner 



Police Commissioners Jerd Sullivan, J. Wesley Howell 
and E. L. Turkington have completed their third year as 
members of the Police Commission. 

In their third year which ended the first of last month 
they continued their constructive efforts to make the entire 
Police Department one of the highest type of efficiency. 
That the personnel from the top spot down to the newest 
member has met the approval of these three business men 
who are serving under the one-term administration of 



keep this town as free from cr:me as it is possible for 
them to do. 

They have been faced with an enlarged population, an 
undermanned force, yet the records will show that crime 
has not increased much in this great western metropolis. 

Murders are less, robberies have shown little increase, 
there hasn't been a bank robbery for ages in this town. 

Burglaries are numerous, but the loot is mostly of the 
petty larceny class. Juvenile Delinquency has been kept 






CoMMI.iSWNER J. WesLLY HoWELL 



PoLiJE Commissioner Jerd Sullivan 



CoMMi.,iio:;Lr, E. L. T. rking'zox 



Mayor Roger D. Lapham is manifested by their continued 
work in behalf of the men and women who make up the 
great law enforcement agency in San Francisco. 

Since they took over the administration of the Police 
Department three years ago they have displayed deep 
concern for the men charged with preserving the peace 
of this community. 

They sponsored two salary raises that puts the police 
of this city on a parity with other large cities on this 
coast. They promoted pay or days off for overtime work 
and for holidays. They were heartily behind the charter 
amendment for the present fine retirement pension plan. 
They worked for the present 44-hour week, and full pay 
for officers totally disabled and widows of those killed in 
line of duty. 

All these things, providing better working conditions, 
better wages and better pensions, were not only com- 
pletely endorsed by the three Commissioners, but they 
threw their influence as successful business men, as sincere 
public officials, behind each change that had to be brought 
about by a vote of the people. 

It is to the credit of the members of the Department 
that they have responded to this highly successful change 
in their wages and working conditions by continuing to 



down. There is but little gambling, only such as can be 
made by a "sneak"" here and there. 

We have no red light section or the problem that is 
present when this form of immorality prevails. 

These favorable conditions don't just occur. They are 
brought about by the intelligent, continued efforts of 
every man wearing a seven point star. These men are 
only human and when they find their efforts are appre- 
ciated as the Police Commission has shown they have been 
appreciated, they put every bit of exertion they possess 
to carry out the duties they have sworn to perform. 

Its their way of telling Police Commissioners Sullivan, 
Howell and Turkington how Grateful they are for the 
great changes they have made in their behalf, more changes 
in three years than in thrice that number in the past. 

The San Francisco police have, since this writer first 
started as a police reporter back in 1913, given their all 
for the protection of our citizens from criminals of all 
sorts, and we know from talking with the men who are 
active today, that they feel highly pleased that their ser- 
vice through the years should be so substantially recognized 
as it has been during the past three years.

Bay Bridse 10 -Year Traffic Record 



S. F.-Oakland Bay Bridge Traffic Officers Set Up 

Outstanding Record in Traffic Control Since 

November 12, 1936, When World's 

Mightiest Span Amazed Structural 

Engineers of The World 

By B. S. (Sandy) Sanders 
Veteran Retired Police Reporter, Writer and Author 



This is the story of the world's greatest vehicular traffic 
bridge. 

This is the story of traffic control which brought to a 




Capt. J. R. Franck 
C/iit| Bay Bridge Highway Patrol 

minimum fatal accidents and other disasters in the world's 
heaviest traffic spot. 

This is the story of alert members of the California 
Highway patrol who direct the 24'hour shuttle movement 
of pleasure cars and commercial vehicles. 

It, too, is the story of two comparatively young men 
who are charged with the engineering problems and the 
maintenance of the great San Francisco bay bridge which 
connects the Metropolis of the West with its sister, con- 
tinentally located neighbor, the mighty growing city of 
Oakland and its environs. 

Automotive traffic started rolling over the San Fran- 
cisco-Oakland Bay Bridge, a $80,000,000 investment on 
November 12, 1936, after its construction in record time 
of less than 5 years, embracing some of the most difficult 
problems of bridge building in the history of mankind. 

Opening day, which had been heralded weeks in ad- 
vance and brought the usual "first nighters" to the scene, 
numbered 75,000 motor-driven vehicles of all sorts, sizes 
anw power. 

Until Easter Sunday, April 21, 1946, this record stood. 
On the latter date 79,016 vehicles paid tolls over the great 
bay bridge, which links the continent with the city by 
the Golden Gate. 



Smce that opening day, 170,225,273 vehicles, (175 
million plus) autos and auto trailers, motorcycles and 
tricars, buses, trucks and truck trailers, have swept across 
the 8-mile bridge including its approaches. 

Total tolls collected from this tremendous traffic 
amounted to $55,557,766.23 during the period from No- 
vember 12, 1936, to December 31, 1946 — ten years of an 
ever-growing daily increase in traffic. 

At the present rate of income Howard C. Wood, prin- 
cipal bridge engineer and his assistant, C. S. Hamilton, 
maintenance engineer, both young men, estimate that this 
great State highway toll bridge will be free of tolls some- 
time in 195 3. 

"Traffic started climbing right after V-J Day and is 
still climbing," says Chief Bridge Engineer Wood. "In 

24 hours after V-J Day, August 15, 1945, traffic jumped 
from 61,000 vehicles to 72,000 a day. In December last 
year tolls climbed to $621,946.36 for a single month. 

'The original traffic toll was 65 cents per car and occu- 
pants. Over the 10-year period tolls have come down to 

25 cents for passenger cars and occupants. Incidentally 
some 70 per cent of these motor vehicles come under the 
commuter classification." 

Total tolls collected in 1946 amounted to $7,314,509.74. 

Some 2,102,721 vehicles crossed the bridge in December, 
1946, as against 2,040,771 in December, 1945. 

There are 63 toll collectors on the job at the toll gate 
on the Oakland side of the bridge.

Also there are a total of some 225 civilian employes 
engaged in various departments of bridge control under 
Principal Bridge Engineer Wood. 

^1,000,000 Maintenance Yearly 

Indicative of the costs of operation of this mighty 
bridge is the fact that the 1946-1947 budget demand 
calls for one million dollars. This involves not only the 
monthly payroll but the employment of 40 or more 
painters who arc continuously putting fresh paint on the 
bridge, continuous structural inspection by experts, two 
of whom are on the job regularly. 



patchers and two young women in the office. 

Incident.illy, Sergeant Wilkinson is a veteran of World 
War II, having served as lieutenant commander in the 
navy in the Pacific war-torn waters. 

Captain Franck Praises His Traffic Officers 

To his sergeants and tr.iffic officers on the bridge. 
Captain Franck gives due praise, saying: "These lads are 
tops. They never miss a trick. Their work is outstanding." 

The vigilance of the bridge traffic patrol is aptly pre- 
sented in the record. In 1946 11,912 arrests were made, 
broken down as follows: drunk driving, 204; reckless 




BIG BOSSES OF SAN FRANCISCO-OAKLAND BAY BRIDGE 
Captain J. R. Franck (right) goes over record of traffic control, accidents and fires on San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge travel since 
the world's greatest bridge was opened to traffic on November 12, 1936 with (left) C. S. Hamilton, maintenance engineer and Hov.-ard 

C. Wood, principal bridge engineer. 



Painting of the bridge started 2 years after its com- 
pletion and has been in continuous process ever since. 

1946 Fatality Record 

Principal Bridge Engineer Wood points with justified 
pride than in 1946 with 100 million vehicle miles regis- 
tered in bridge travel, there were only 2.0 per cent fatal- 
ities recorded while on other State highways the death 
rate was 10.4 per cent or 5 times greater. In 1945 the 
ratio discloses that for every fatality on the bay bridge 
there were 15.3 deaths on other state roadways. 

There was not a single fatality for the first 11 months 
of 1946 though the San Francisco Bay Bridge carries the 
heaviest motor vehicular traffic of any spot in the world. 

This remarkable record is due entirely to the vigilance 
of Captain J. R. Franck, his squad Sergeants R. White 
and R. C. Wilkinson, 29 traffic officers, four radio dis- 



driving, 67; city ordinance drunks, 44; speeding, 7591; 
rules of the road, 2416; faulty lights, 325; faulty brakes, 
107; other moving violations, 369; non-moving viola- 
tions, 789. 

And during the year 2597 warnings were issued for 
moving violations; 10,330 for lights; 139 for brakes; 650 
for other moving violations and 2919 for non-moving. 

December of last year brought the record of accidents 
down to 47, despite the fact that this was the heaviest 
traffic month of the year. Two people died as result of 
accidents, there were 9 personal injury accidents, 21 day- 
light accidents and 26 night accidents.

Golden Gate Park and Its Policing 



Golden Gate Park, which splits the Richmond and 
Sunset districts, is the largest all year round municipally 
owned park in the United States. In its confines of three 
and a half miles by half a mile there are 1013 acres offer- 
ing the people of San Francisco and hundreds of thou- 
sands of visitors many attractions. 




Julius Girod, Par\ Superintendent 

It is a park where there are no "keep off the grass" 
signs, thus assuring a place where many families can 
enjoy a real old time picnic. It is a common thing on 
nice days to see small groups gathered on shady lawns 
scattered throughout the area of the park. 

Seldom does a Sunday pass without a concert by a 
municipal band, and where music lovers can sit in a 
beautifully tree shaded seat. 

The stadium offers weekly attractions and every Sunday 
there is a polo match. 

The bridle paths are populated by many horseback 
riders, enjoying the fine trails laid out through the park. 

There are fine tennis courts, which have develojDed 
some of the champions of the world, patronized by many, 
young and old. 

An aviary houses many species of birds and their exotic 
plumage attracts thousands. 

One of the newest additions to the park are three con- 
crete fly casting pools, located at the western end of the 
Stadium area, situated on a beautifully sequestered hill 
top. These pools, built in 1937 by the WPA under the 
supervision of T. M. Grabow, park engineer, are the 
finest in the world. One is 125x180 feet, the largest 
180x180 feet, and a beginner's pool 90x180 feet. An 
attractive club house is on the northern side of the pools. 

There are bowling greens attracting many people every 
day. 

The children's play ground with pony and burro rides, 



merry-go-round, slides, swings and other recreations for 
the young folks, is a haven for the youths of the city. 
A cafe is operated there, where meals, well prepared, are 
served at low prices. 

The attractions offered to sightseers are endless. 

De Young's Museum houses a great collection of historic.

artistic and beautiful objects, and one never tires of 
looking at them. 

Steinhart Aquarium, with its beautiful and rare display 
of fish from the oceans and fresh water, and the Academy 
of Sciences, with its fine arrangement of wildlife speci- 
mens, draws thousands annually. 

The Oriental Tea Gardens, an old land mark, is a top 
drawing feature. 

Spreckels Lake, which offers the- juveniles an opportunity 
to try their knowledge of boating, is a beautiful place 
to see. 

Nowhere will there be found a floral conservatory that 
offers as many gorgeous flowers as the park conservatory. 

Nowhere will there be found a greater variety of trees 
and shrubs, gathered from many foreign lands and states 
as well as California, than those that cover the park. The 
many areas planted to rhododendrons offer an eyeful dur- 
ing their spring blooming season. 

Other features are the Dutch windmills at the western 
corners of the park; Stow lake, with its boating, its wild 
ducks, geese and swans; the spot laid out for a memorial 
to the late John McLaren; many small lakes; the buffalo 
paddock and range; the deer and elk. 

On nice days from 70,000 to 80,000 people visit the 
park to see these wonders and enjoy the recreational fea- 
tures offered by the park management. 

John McLaren, who built this park from a rolling area 
of and dunes, did such a fine job that no one ever suggested

George Vice, U- S. Marshal 



"I mind my own business and treat everyone fairly — 
that's the way I run my department," explains San Fran- 
cisco's U. S. Marshal, George Vice, in his quiet basso- 
profundo. 

Appointed marshal for the northern and southern divi- 
sions of the Northern District of California by President 
Franklin D. Roosevelt, October 1, 193 J, Vice succeeded 
Fred Eseola, who served two terms after appointment by 
President Calvin Coolidge. 

His thirteen years as law enforcement officer for the 
federal courts represent the longest tour of duty ever 
served by a San Francisco marshal. During that period 
his staff changed quarters from the cramped and inade- 
quate facilities on the third floor to the complete west 
side of the second floor of the post office building at 
Seventh and Mission Streets. 

California was a young state when George Vice was 
K>rn in Sacramento, where he was reared during a fiery 
and booming era that contributed greatly to the estab- 
lishment of the law and order he is now .sworn to uphold 
for Uncle Sam. 

Philosophic advice from the knees of his ciders did 
not tell Vice of the tribulations and responsibilities of 
life — hard work was a more graphic teacher. As a youth 
of sixteen, he held a back breaking job of stoking the old 
wood burning locomotives on Southern Pacific's Sacra- 
mento-Truckee run. 

Today the same fellow, short, husky, with iron grey 
hair is known as "Marshal." His crew-style haircut is as 
familiar to his friends as the pinched-top hat that hides it. 
You don't see the marshal very often around the building, 
but you can always find him — he is never absent when 
there are proceedings which call for the watchful eye 
of a lawman. 

Vice and his wife, the former Edith Meiss of Sacra- 
mento, didn't send any sons to the service when World 
War II came, because they had none. But when the 
fighting had ended, Helen Marie, their daughter, was 
discharged from three years' service with the Waves. 
Today as a teacher in a Sunset district school she is trying 
to make work easier for men in her father's profession. 

The marshal doesn't interfere with the work of his 
twenty-two deputies — "they know their business well," 
he explains. 

In a department filled with some husky deputies one 
does a fast "double take" when a figure with a trim pair 
of ankles and other "attractions" passes by. That is Juana 
Eggleston, only "lady deputy" in Vice's office. Unknown 
to the marshal, perhaps, are rumors that a navy officer 
thinks her place is not in the marshal's office. 

Deputies in the department include the following men : 
John A. Roseen, chief deputy, and office deputies James 
F. Eagan, John H. D. Bouse, Joseph A. Fassler, Lawrence 
Mclnerney, and Diarmuid McCarthy. 

Field criminal deputies: Joseph J. Kennedy, Warren 
D. Cain, Raymond A. Calmes (Oakland office) ; Emile 



J. Canepa, Earl F. Ingham (Eureka Office) ; Joseph J. 
Maher, Charles S. McCarthy, Thomas P. McGowan, 
Joseph J. Powers, and Charles J. Pomerantz. 

Sacramento field criminal deputies: Hayden L. Saun- 
ders, John V. O'Brien, and Wesley Erich. 

Only field deputy in the civil department is Herbert 
R. Cole to whom falls the sometimes difficult task of 
serving civil writs. Cole could write a book on the 
"dodges" employed against him by wily individuals who 
fought to the end to escape the inevitable service of 
summons. 

Execution of the criminal and civil laws of northern 
California federal courts represent only part of the mar- 
shal's duties. Each month he handles a $43,000 payroll 
for San Francisco federal court employees, judges, U. S. 
attorneys, jurors, and witnesses. 

Vice and his deputies cooperate closely with the Federal 
Bureau of Investigation, Secret Service, Alcohol Tax Unit 
of the Bureau of Internal Revenue, Immigration and 
Naturalization Service, and other federal agencies, not to 
mention a large volume of work with San Francisco and 
other police departments. 

The U. S. marshal serves as a salesman in government 
libel actions and in the disposal of confiscated items. 

Only five months before the U. S. tangled with his 
homeland, the toothy, grinning skipper of a Japanese 
freighter proved to Vice that the preservation of self 
control and diplomacy is sometimes difficult. The marshal 
spent three hours on the dock of the Tatuta Maru for 
an opportunity to hand Captain Toichi Takshata a federal 
court writ which would attach his cargo of 7000 bales of 
silk. When he finally cornered the apologetic Takshata, 
Vice smothered an impulse to toss him overboard into 
San Francisco Bay. Instead he growled "So sorry," and 
handed the writ to the skipper.

Mission Kiwanis Install 1947 Officers 

Sponsors of Baseball and Many Other Youth Activities Still Going Strong 

By Lieut. Harry Reity 
Retired San Francisco Police Officer 



The following officers were recently installed at the 
Green Hills Golf Club in San Mateo County where the 
Kiwanianr. and their ladies enjoyed a gala evening. 

Joseph F. Rae, Editor of The Twin Pea}{s Sentinel, one 
of the city's district papers, who was horn and reared in 




Joseph F. Rae. Kiwanis President 

Noe Valley, Mission District, and who is among the most 
popular friends of hoys in San Francisco, was installed 
President. 

Wm. R. Henry, who did a grand job as 1946 president 
was installed Immediate Past President. 
The other officers are: 

Melvin S. Carr First Vice President 

Dr. Donald Lastreto Second Vice President 

Herbert H. Eling. Third Vice President 

Robert A. Jennings Secretary-Treasurer 

Jack L. Lanning Sergeant-at-Arms 

Board of Directors: Horace Thurlow, Les Oliver, Eu- 
gene Tuggey, Charles Molinari, Fred Drewes, Father C. 
Kennedy, Edward Cicerone, Thos. J. Lenehan, Dr. V. 
John Oulliber, Wm. G. Menary. 

The Mission Kiwanis Club became a chartered club 
of Kiwanis International in November, 1934. The mem- 
bership is made up of business and professional men of 
the Mission District in San Francisco. There are now 
more than twenty-two hr.ndred Kiwanis Clubs in cities 
throughout the United States and Canada. The first club 
was organized in the city of Detroit, Michigan, toward 
the close of 1914 when Allen S. Browne, a fraternal 
organizer and Joseph G. Prance, a business man of 
Detroit, organized a Businessmen's Club. Mr. Prance was 
its first member and his application receipt is dated De- 
cember 8, 1914. Donald A. Johnson was the first president 
of the Detroit Club. 

Considerable thought was given to selection of a name 
for the new organization. C. M. Burton, historian of the 



City of Detroit and the State of Michigan, was con- 
sulted and after some research submitted several Indian 
names, among which was the name "KEE-WANIS." 
This had been found in the Indian vocabulary compiled 
by Bishop Frederic Baraga, pioneer of Upper Michigan, 
and its derived meanings were: "To make one's self 
known," "To impress one's self." Mr. Burton changed 
the original spelling to read "KIWANIS" and this was 
adopted by the club as its official name in January, 1915. 
Kiwanis is therefore a coined name, but its verbal an- 
cestry suggests "Self Expression." Its practical significance 
in each community becomes just what the Kiwanis club 
makes the name mean, as by actual accomplishment it 
invests the word with the prestige of worth; and so we 
San Franciscans can look upon the accomplishments of 
the MISSION KIWANIS CLUB with a justified feel- 
ing of Pride. 

Here are a few of their many accomplishments: Since 
the Big Brother Division of the San Fr-'.ncisco Police De- 
partment was established in April of 1935, the Mission 
Kiwanis Club has been literally the Big Brother of that 
unit. Among many of the police projects outstanding is: 
boys' baseball teams for which the club has paid out several 
thousands of dollars. For the year ending December 31, 
1946, the bill for three teams for uniforms and equip- 
ment, exceeded eighteen hundred dollars. The coaches 
of these teams are: Bill Valentine and Fred Keyworth, 
Police Officers, members of the Big Brother Division. 

The American Women Voluntary Service which did 
such a marvelous job during the war, are continuing their 
service by inculcating in the minds of a junior group in 
the Mission District, the ideals that made their organiza- 
tion great. The Mission Kiwanis Club made a substantial 
cash contribution to them. Each Christmas underprivi- 
leged children, wards of officers of the Juvenile Court are 
provided with new shoes, clothes and toys. The club also 
sponsors a girls' indoor ba.^eball team. 

The cases of individuals helped are too numerous to 
mention here. The "Welfare Fund" from which this 
money comes is provided through the medium of penny 
gum-hall machines, placed in strategic positions in stores 
and offices throughout the city, which is one more proof 
that "Intelligent cooperation can work wonders."

The Candid Friend Says 



Page 1} 



By Opie L. Warner 



Right now the San Francisco Police Department is 
about to be increased by about two hundred patrolmen — 
this number being allowable under the provisions of the 
Charter of the City and County of San Francisco in ac- 
cordance with the present population of the city. 

Already there are four or five hundred young men in 
the prime of life wearing the blue of the San Francisco 
Police Department. They are patrolmen assigned to the 
night watches. 

Night watches in the San Francisco Police Department 
are definitely the lot of young patrolmen and entirely de- 
void of glamor especially to the patrolman who has a little 
home and kiddies. There is one door of escape, however, 
from the average twenty years of night patrol work — 
promotion. 

Promotion — in any line of endeavor — is a sweet morsel. 
But, to a San Francisco Police Department patrolman, the 
business of securing promotion is quite a problem — yes, a 
mighty big problem even for the most ambitious. 

A patrolman with even a trace of an inferiority complex 
should just resign himself to his fate and endeavor to feel 
happy as a patrolman today, tomorrow and until some 
twenty years from now when his seniority will entitle him 
to a day watch. 

Such inferiority complex patrolmen always have the 
same excuse — or pair of excuses rather — for not taking 
promotional examinations. The standard excuse is: "The 
department is full of college men ; and, anyhow, what 
chance have I of making a job when six or seven hundred 
sit in for the examination?" The other standby excuse is: 
"Figure all the books you have to study — they would make 
a little library; and it would take a Philadelphia lawyer 
to answer the phoney questions that Civil Service outfit 
tosses at you." 

I have answered these a.ssertions on many occasions by 
saying: "Yes, the department today, and down through 
the years, has contained many well educated men who did 
routine patrol work — yes, and this patrolling was done 
under the supervision of commissioned and non-commis- 
sioned officers some of whom were lucky to have graduated 
from grammar school." The truth is bitter; but, some- 
times we are compelled to state it even though it hurts our 
best friends. 

Of recent years policing has become a profession. That 
is the reason for the variety of information demanded for 
each step in promotion from rank of patrolman. A knowl- 
edge of municipal, state and federal laws must be supple- 
mented by the works of criminologists on the various 
phases of policing and producing top police efficiency with 
the minimum of numerical police personnel. 

Some months from now an examination will be held for 
promotion from the rank of patrolman to the rank of ser- 
geant in the San Francisco Police Department. 

The information required to be successful in this pro- 
motion is definitely comprehensive; and, due to the fact 



that all such examinations are of the "true or false" type 
a close familiarity with the facts set forth in the various 
texts from which the questions are taken is absolutely 
necessary. 

Anyone who has taken these tests will impress on you 
the fact that you must know your subjects so well that, on 
a first, quick reading of the very many questions proposed 
you must, without hesitation, be able to mark the question 
true or false. 

Work, work, and more work — that is what will bring 
you promotion in this coming examination. The books to 
be studied make a formidable pile indeed ; and each and all, 
they certainly are devoid of jokes, amusing stories, wise 
cracks and funny pictures. 

You must remember the reward for your success is very 
much worth while. There is the honor of making the 
grade in a group of six or seven hundred of your fellow 
workers. Then again, there is the increase in salary and 
the ever present chance, distant, or more or less nearby, of 
getting away from the so-called "dog watches" — those sure 
shot destroyers of gaiet\', youth, sleep, digestion and what 
have you. 

When we are young and full of life's energy and good 
feeling for all men we are prone to say: "No matter what 
the pay, I don't want to be a boss." We feel quite proud 
of our sense of freedom from responsibility. That is youth 
— and youth always finds that experience is an expensive 
teacher. 

\Vhen, in later years, we have a man, whom we reason- 
ably dubbed as dumb, tell us where to be at such an hour, 
and what to do at such a place, our manly statements of 
some years ago about being a boss shock our memory like 
a boomerang. 

Yes, we mentally bewail, he was dumb, as the name 
goes. But he did something. He made good of the little 
talent he was endowed with because he was dumb enough 
to have ambition. He studied his "black book" and all the 
other books. He got his stripes — and now he gives orders 
to the boys who wanted to be regular fellows and have no 
responsibility. 

It is no crime to be young and foolish and police officers 
in their early years are not unlike any other group of young 
men — but it is quite censurable to keep on being foolish. 

Many of the bosses in the San Francisco Police Depart- 
ment today actually passed up one or two corporal 
examinations for the youthful reason that they wanted to 
shirk responsibility and just be "one of the gang." 

They are in the boss division today for the single reason 
that they were chagrined to be taking orders from men to 
whom, only a couple of years ago, they had given a very 
low appraisal. When they started to climb the ladder of 
promotion they left their youthful altruism about respon- 
sibility behind — and in quite a number of cases that I know 
of they went tooth and nail after promotion with the idea

Winners oF Interdepartmental Pistol Matches 



The 1946 pistol shooting at the San Francisco fine 
Pistol Range wound up in November, as far as the 
members of the San Francisco PoHcc Department are con- 
cerned, in a blaze of glory. 

Never in the history of this city have there been so many

tire year. 




Officer Frank Dunphy 

Officer Karl Schaugaard of Headquarters company came 
out as the individual champion in the master class and he 
set a high mark of 1990 out of a possible 2000. Some 
marksmanship we would say. . 



For winning the Class A match, Mission team No. 1 
was awarded the Call-Bulletin beautiful trophy by Thor 
Smith, assistant to the publisher of that local newspaper. 

General Fredericks of the U. S. A. presented a war

Jack Cannon . . .The Dasher . . .Takes Pension 



Inspector Jack Cannon, "The Dasher" to his close 
friends of whom he has many, has turned in his star and 
taken his retirement pension. 

Few members of the San Francisco PoHce Department 
have had as colorful a career as Inspector John J. Cannon. 

He was born in Stockton November 2, 1887 and as a 
young man became a locomotive fireman. His runs brought 




hisp. J. J Cannon (right). Late Insp. Arthur McQuaide and 
Insp. George Wall, on first Auto Detail. 



him to the bay region and he finally settled in San Fran- 
cisco. On February 29, 1912 he became a member of the 
Police Department. 

He is a well built man, and was a champion welter 
weight wrestler, an accomplishment which stood him in 
good stead in his new calling. 

He did some eight years on station patrol, and was 
brought into the Detective Bureau on January 12, 1920, 
and three years later was made a Detective Sergeant. 
On September 1, 1926, he was promoted to Corporal and 
in September 1937 when this rank was abolished he was 
raised to Sergeant. 

A carefuU dresser, well proportioned and with a won' 
derful ability to express himself — being an authority, too, 
on underworld slang — he was singled out by former 
Chiefs David A. White, Daniel J. O'Brien, William J. 
Quinn and present Chief Charles W. DuUea to handle all 
big social events down the peninsula where police might 
be needed. He headed many a detail, clad in long tails 
and high hats, and never once while the crew he headed 
at any social event, was there any funny business in the 
way of lifting some of the invaluable table service, the 
fur coats of the wealthy women attending or were any 
jewels ever purloined while he and his boys were on the 
job. All the millionaires, near millionaires and their 
families knew Jack Cannon and he was always welcomed 
at their homes whether on official assignment or just for 
a social call. 



He travelled far. He went to Mexico once to get a 
prisoner, and he improved his time while waiting 
for the extradition proceedings. He visited all the Mex- 
ican state prisons and brought back an account of how 
they are run and how the Mexican government handles 
those who break the law. He wrote two articles for the 
Police .\.nd Pe.ace Officers' Journal which attracted 
much interest. 

He also went to China to get a woman who had em- 
bezzled $25,000 from a San Francisco doctor's wife. He 
had a tough fight to get the gal extradited, hut acting as 
his own attorney he finally got her out of China and 
brought her back to San Francisco. 

In January, 1922, he took a prominent part in the 
arrest of five automobile holdup men. 

He was also in the posse that surrounded the late "Big 
Bill" O'Connor, head of the notorious gang of daylight 
robbers who got over a half million dollars in this state 
by daring raids on big business houses. O'Connor was 
cornered in a Sixth street hotel after pulling a $25,000 
jewelry store robbery. He was shot and brought in and 
sentenced to San Quentin. 

On October 7, 1936, he captured two men who had 
held up a Divisadero store. 

For all these three jobs he was cited for meritorious 
service. 

For many years he was on the Banking and Stock Detail, 
a part of the Bunco and Pickpocket Detail, and with his 
partner, the late Inspector Thomas Curtis, he became 
known as an expert on the ways of the bunco artists 
bringing in many of them. Many of his stories have ap- 
peared in this magazine. 

He acted as body guard for many notables visiting San 
Francisco, prominent among them Jock Whitney and the 
Duke of Manchester, England. The latter thought so 
much of the fine service Inspector Cannon rendered during 
his stay here that he sent Cannon an ivory handled, gold 
inlaid automatic pistol which Inspector Cannon has car- 
ried ever since. 

He was well known to opera lovers, as he took over 
the policing of all opera openings during his tenure on 
the Department.

pected to be called as a witness. 

36. A police officer arresting a person is morally obli- 
gated to advise the person where he can obtain bail. 

37. The police have the responsibility for the recovery of 
stolen property. 

38. The facility with which criminals move from city 
to city and from state to state with no fixed place 
of abode is an important contribution to ineffective- 
ness in the administration of justice. 

39. It is good policy when arresting a person to charge 
him with a more serious offense than the one for 
which he is arrested so that he will plead guilty to 
the lesser crime. 

40. A police officer who makes an arrest and who is con- 
vinced of the guilt of the person apprehended should 
advise the person arrested to plead guilty upon ar- 
raignment.

Sacramento Police Want Salary Raise 



The current salary for a patrolman with four years' 
experience is $250. Beginners start at $220 and get a $10 
a month raise until they reach the top figure. 

This salary schedule is among the lowest in the 16 
largest cities in the state, and is considered far too low 
by the members of the employes' committee. Their point 
is emphasized particuarly by the fact that the men work 
a 4 8 -hour week while policemen in other cities are having 
their hours reduced to 44 and 40 hours a week. 

The policemen feel, too, that they were given the short 
end of the deal when the last pay increase was granted. 
All other city workers were placed on a 40-hour week and 
most of them were given raises which approximate what 
the policemen got. Yet no provision was made for shorten- 
ing the hours a policeman works, or increasing his salary 
over the amount given workers who do not devote as 
much time to their jobs. 

The effort to get more money for policemen is by no 
means new to Sacramento. Back in 1942 a proposition 
asking for an increase was put on the ballot in the No- 
vember election. It was organized hurriedly, however, and 
it failed of passage because its backers did not have enough 
time to acquaint the public with its need. 

The next year the identical measure passed by an 
overwhelming margin, and policemen got a $25 increase, 
subsequently they received a $10 raise, and the last pay 
hike increased to $50 the amount policemen's pay has 
been increased in Sacramento since the war started. 

Members of the Sacramento Police Department will 
decide early in the year 1947 whether to go direct to the 
people in an effort to get an adequate pay raise. 

A heated campaign was conducted during October and 
November to get an 18J/2 per cent increase, which is 
about what workers in private industry have been getting. 

Officers Emmett Spraktes and James Lyons, as the de- 



partment's representatives on the City Employes Associa- 
tion's executive committee took the lead in the fight, aided 
by Sergeant Kenneth Johnson, Captain Patrick J. Bennett 
and Officer James V. Hicks. 

Despite a lot of work and one pretty heated session 
with the city council, the department members were able 
to get only a $15 a month increase. None of the city 
officials denied the fact that the policemen were entitled 
to more, but there just wasn't enough money in the 
budget to grant a more adequate amount. 

The police representatives are planning to talk the 
situation over with City Manager Bartley W. Cavanaugh 
in a series of conferences in the near future. A vote has 
not yet been taken, but most officers on the force believe 
when one is taken the majority will favor putting a police 
pay raise proposition on the ballot next November. 

Fifty dollars might seem like a lot, but the committee 
points out two things: 

1 — A salary of $250 is very little for a family man 
to squeeze by on the way prices are now. 

2 — The increases are far below the raises that workers 
in private industry have obtained. 

Another gimmick was thrown into the works when 
the federal apprentice pay law was changed. Before the 
change ex-servicemen starting to work as policemen had 
hoped to get an extra $30 a month from the federal gov- 
ernment. But that is impossible now because under the 
new law anyone making $200 a month or more is not 
eligible. Veterans' organizations are bringing pressure to 
bear to get the old setup back again, however, and the 
results are being watched with interest in Sacramento. 

The committee members believe that by early spring 
some decision on the local pay situation — and possibly on 
the hours situation too — will have been made.

BAY COUNTIES' 



Peace Officers' Association 



MEETINGS EVERY MONTH 



Chief Melvin Flohr, President 



Captain Bernard McDonald, SecretaryTreasurer 



Meeting of the Bay Counties Peace Officers Association 
held at the Nugget Grill, 418 Thirteenth Street, Oakland, 
California, on Thursday, January 30, 1947. 

The meeting was called to order by Sheriff H. P. 
Gleason, the President of the AsscKiation. Sheriff Gleason 
then called upon Chief Robert P. Tracy, the host and 
Chief Tracy welcomed the members and then introduced 
the members of his official family who were in attendance 
at the meeting. 

Sheriff Gleason then introduced a number of the 
members and guests who were present. 

Chief Greening was then called upon to give the report 
of the nominating committee on the officers of the Associa' 



stead Allen Moore, Director of Paroles, would address 
the Association. Mr. Moore then spoke on the parole 
situation, the highlights of his speech being as follows: 

The public at large does not understand the difficulties 
that face the members of the Adult Authority. The 
present Board, which he felt was composed of the finest 
men he knew, have a very difficult time in deciding 
whom shall be paroled. Every so often statements are 
issued that the parole board should be abolished and the 
Adult Authority has no way of defending themselves 
before the public. Very few people understand the prac' 
tical problem which confronts the Adult Authority. 

J. Edgar Hoover, Director of the Federal Bureau of Iden- 






C.APTAiN Bernard McDonald 



Chief Melvin Flohr 



Chief Walter J. Wisnom 



tion for the ensuing year and he reported that the follow- 
ing nominations were made: 

President, Melvin Flohr, Chief of Police, Santa Rosa. 

Vice President, W. J. Wisnom, Chief of Police, Hills- 
borough, Calif. 

Secretary-Treasurer, Bernard J. McDonald, Captain of 
Inspectors, San Francisco. 

A motion was then made, seconded and carried that 
the report of the nominating committee be accepted and 
the above mentioned officers be inducted into office. 

Sheriff Gleason then told the members that Walter A. 
Gordon, Chairman of the Adult Authority, who was 
scheduled to speak at this meeting, could not be with us 
as his father had passed away in Los Angeles and in his 



tification and recognized as the foremost law enforcement 
officer in the United States, criticizes the parole system, 
and while Mr. Hoover may not be criticizing the Adult 
Authority of this State, he generalizes and generalities are 
dangerous. 

The California indeterminate sentence law causes pris- 
oners to be incarcerated longer before their release than 
any other state with the possible exceptions of New York 
and Illinois. 

The Adult Authority cannot grant leniency. The only 
man that can extend leniency to a prisoner is the Gov- 
ernor of the State. 

One of the great problems the Adult Authority has is

PAT H. CUNNINGHAM 

Chief of Police of Indio 



Pat H. Cunningham, Chief of PoHce of Indio, was 
born in Texas in 1906 and first came to CaHfornia in 
1920. His career as a law-enforcement officer began in 
1936 at Johnson City, New York, where he served for 
three years as a patrolman. Chief Cunningham has also 




Chief Pat H. Cunningham 

been with the U. S. Customs Patrol and the Riverside 
Sheriff's Department. 

He first came to Indio as a patrolman in 1941 and has 
been appointed Chief three times. His diversified experi- 
ence and background as a police officer are assets of the 
greatest value to him and the community he serves. The 
personnel of the Indio Department, in addition to Chief 
Cunningham, numbers seven men and two women : 

Marvin E. Terry, Day Sergeant. 

John Allison, Night Sergeant. 

Ben T. Alexander, Patrolman. 

Lewis E. Goen, Patrolman. 

Homer L. Hunt, Patrolman. 

James Simpson, Patrolman. 

ElHs Webb, Patrolman. 

Louise McKnight, Matron. 

Glendoris Bay, Secretary. 

Robert Grant, Cook. 

Indio is located in the heart of the Coachelia Valley 
in Riverside County, on Highway 99, about twenty-five 
miles scjth of Palm Springs, one of the nation's out- 
standing winter resorts. It is about twenty miles north 
of the Salten Sea. 



This unique city is situated in the center of America's 
date country and the region also produces the finest of 
California grapefruit. 

The City Hall and jail were built in 1932 to accommo- 
date a city of two thousand persons, however, because of 
the large floating population, the problems now are those 
of a city of twenty thousand inhabitants. 

The Department has a modern kitchen and mess hall 
which is operated with great efficiency and kept spotless 
at ail times by a paid cook. 

Indio has a radio hookup with the Riverside Sheriff's 
radio station KQAD. 



On January 4 Captain of Inspectors Bernard J. Mc- 
Donald announced the following promotions in the Bureau 
of Inspectors: 

Joseph Norton from Temporary Inspector to Perma- 
nent; Sergeant Martin Lee from Assistant Inspector to 
Temporary Inspector and Van P. Denike from the office 
detail to Assistant Inspector. 

Last December Captain McDonald assigned another 
man to Lieutenant Timothy Burke's Homicide Detail. 
He is Inspector Thomas Cahill, who will work with vet- 
eran Inspector Frank Ahern. Inspectors Martin Lee and 
George Heeg form another team and Lieutenant Burke 
has Officer Thomas Fogarty as a clerk and a young officer 
who is well able to step out on any murder case, as he, 
like Inspectors Lee and Heeg, can lift and classify finger- 
prints as well as any expert. 

Officer Fogarty has mastered the stenotype and this 
accomplishment makes him invaluable for taking state- 
ments in homicide investigations, and he is available for 
other Detail when the occasion arises.

race riots can be met successfully, according to an article 
in the December 28 Saturday Evening Post. 

"Intelligent police," Warner Olivier writes, "are going 
to school to learn how to handle racial tensions, how to 
lessen the possibilities of race riots and how to deal with 
such riots if preventive work fails." 

As an example of the value of planning and education 
in racial problems, the article cites what is termed "smart 
preventive police work" displayed recently at Richmond, 
Calif. Richmond was "ripe for a racial holocaust," but 
when an incendiary incident occurred, the police moved 
quickly and no trouble ensued. 

The successful action by the Richmond police is credited 
to a five-day training course which had been held in the 
city a bare two weeks before. It was the first of a series 
of courses now being conducted throughout the country 
by the American Council on Race Relations. 

The ACRR courses study such race riots as those which 
occurred at Detroit, Youngstown, Ohio, Columbia, Tenn., 
and Beaumont, Tex., the article states, as well as the 
technique which prevented possible outbreaks in Wash- 
ington, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, and Houston, Texas. 

Joseph T. Kluchesky, former chief of police of Mil- 
waukee, conducts the courses under the supervision of 
Alexander A. Liveright, executive director of the 
A.C.R.R.

TRAGIC END FOR ENSIGN 
JOHN PAUL ENGLER 

Sorrow enveloped every member of the San Francisco 
Police Department, when on January 30, Ensign John 
Paul Engler, son of Captain John A. Engler was killed in 
his F8F, Navy fighter plane on a field near Cotati. 

The young Ensign, who was but 21 years of age had 
been in the navy for the past four years, and in the early 
years of his service to his country he took his training at 
the St. Mary's Pre-Flight School. 

At the time of the accident where his plane after hitting 
the ground burst into flames, he was, according to navy 
authorities, engaged in field carrier practice. 

He was an apt flyer and had many hours to his credit, 
and from the time when he was but 17 years of age he 
entered the service of his country, he concentrated on per- 
fecting himself in all phases of aviation. From his boot 
camp days to the day he met his tragic end, he had mas- 
tered every detail of this modern age of travel. He was 
singled out by his superiors as a young man with determi- 
nation, intelligence and patriotism. He was immensely 
popular with the young men he had served with during 
his four years of service. 

A year ago he married Joetta Adams, of Fullerton, 
who had come to San Francisco where she was engaged in 
therapy work, being recognized for her successful atten- 
tion to infantile paralysis patients. 

The Requiem High Mass, held at Holy Name Church, 
brought out a large concourse of friends of the young 
Ensign and of his family. 

Beside his widow Ensign Engler is survived by his 
parents, three sisters, Doris, Barbara and Marjorie Engler.

Chief of Police R. O. Stanley, of Hanford 



Hanford, the county seat of Kings County, located 
some 241 miles south of San Francisco, is the center of 
as fertile an area as could be found in these United States. 

Noted for its dairying, grains, fruits, cotton, hay, live- 
stock, and milk condensing plants, it is in the county that 
has the famous Kettleman Hills oil wells, and the largest 
muscat vineyard, which produces the finest raisins. 

Hanford is a compact small inland city, with modern 
buildings added to those erected during the pioneer days 
of the little city. Store buildings are stocked with all 
the goods necessary for the more than ten thousand people 
who live within the two square miles area, as well as 
thousands of other people who flock there to do their 
shopping and enjoy various means of recreation. 

During the harvesting of the various crops there is a 
great expansion of population as thousands of migrant 
workers move in to work in fields and orchards. 

Yet with all the activity that the many resources provide 
for Hanford there is no crime worth dweUing upon. 
True, there are a few burglaries, hardly any robberies, 
murders are rare, indeed, and other so-called higher 
bracket crimes are almost non-existent. Check passing 
and automobile stealing head the list of crimes committed 
in Hanford. The floating population which in other sec- 
tions of the state pose a problem for peace ofiicers, are 
well controlled in the county seat of Kings County. 

The credit for the splendid law enforcement of Han- 
ford can be dealt out in lavish measures to Chief of Police 
R. O. Stanley. 

Chief Stanley has been a member of the Police De- 
partment for over ten years, progressing from patrolman 
to investigator, to a Lieutenancy and was a Captain 
when he was made Chief of Police more than a year and 
a half ago. In all ranks he displayed a rare knowledge 
of law enforcement. Once in the service of the Depart- 
ment he did not stop learning and he had his part in 
making the 15 members of the Department a well-formed 
unit for preserving the peace. 

Working in close harmony with Sheriff O. H. Clyde, 
and his force of deputies, the Highway Patrol of the 
San Joaquin area and other peace officers of neighboring 
cities, he has demonstrated by his less than two years as 
head of the Police Department that he is an able and 
intelligent public servant. 

Hanford is a main point of the State teletype system. 
The Police Department has its own radio station, KBW, 
and serves the Sheriff's office and the men of the Highway 
Patrol assigned to the Kings County district. 

Mrs. Helen Rottman and Mrs. Delphia Harris have 
charge of the radio broadcasting. 

The Police Department has three two-way radio 
equipped cars patrolling the city. 

Captain A. G. Yates is in charge of night activities 
of the Department. The other commissioned officer is 
Lieutenant Floyd Bollenbacher. The investigation work 



is under the direction of H. C. Crosby, and the people in 
Hanford will tell you that no department large or small 
has a more capable investigator, who knows no hours when 
he is on a case and he yields nothing to the Northwest 
Mounted Police when it comes to getting an evil doer 
he has set out to bring to book. 

Chief Stanley during the 12 years he has lived in Han- 
ford knows the people who make up the city's population 
and probably no other thing has brought about greater 
cooperation from the public of that teeming town, than 
the little booklet he has had printed and circulated, en- 
titled "Know your Hanford Police Department." 

In this booklet he sets forth many worthwile items that 
are calculated to bring the residents in closer harmony 
with the Police Department. In later issues will be found 
reprints from this booklet dealing with "Don'ts for Busi- 
ness Men as an Aid to Crime Prevention." 

You will find no Police Department in this state, 
whether metropolitan or interurban, which has gotten 
together so fine a publication, setting forth in terse para- 
graphs simple things — which many overlook or do not 
realize their importance — that if followed universally 
would reduce crimes of this nation to an unbelievable 
minimum. 

In subsequent issues of the Journal we shall reproduce 
other worthwhile features contained in Chief Shanley's 
worthwhile advice to the law abiding. 

While Chief Stanley was a Captain he organized for 
the Police Department the school children in a Junior 
Traffic Patrol. All children, whether on duty at street 
crossings near schools, were given understandable lectures 
by traffic experts, and as a result since the establishment 
of the Junior Patrol in 1944 there has not been a child 
killed or injured in any traffic accident where the Patrol 
was working. 

Chief Stanley's philosophy seems to be that crime 
prevention is more important than jerking out of circula- 
tion perpetrators of crimes. With the course for educating 
the public, with his 24-hour coverage with radio 
equipped patrol cars, with his ability to instruct and 
command the force of officers working with him, and 
his ability to work with fellow peace officers he has given 
Hanford police protection that is of the highest order.

Sheriff Singleton of Glenn County 



Hal A. Singleton, Sheriff of Glenn county, started his 
second term as chief law enforcement officer of that 
upper Sacramento Valley prosperous commonwealth, Jan- 
uary 1. 

In Sheriff Singleton California has an officer of the law 
who during his first four years of office has done more 




to take a duck from the east coast and came west, landing 
in Vancouver, where he was later arrested for committing 
three murders. He was convicted and sentenced to life 
imprisonment and served 13 years and four months of 
this sentence. 

Well, he came south and landed in Glenn county with 
his pal, but he did not get a chance to warm a cosy bed 
very long before SheriflF Singleton and his men yanked 
him out of circulation and impressed him and his buddy 
with the idea that their kind was not desired thereabouts. 



Sheriff Hal A. Singleton 

to make the Sheriff's Department up-to-date and who has 
made cooperation with other peace officers of California 
his first order of business. 

With a small force of four deputies, he has through 
the use of two-way radio, given the people of his county 
24-hour service in enforcing the law. He has established 
the teletype, and has outfitted a swell identification bureau 
with the latest in cameras and other photographic equip- 
ment. His identification bureau has a complete filing 
system in which records are kept, including fingerprints 
and photos. In fact he has completely rehabilitated the 
Sheriff's office of Glenn county. 

Born and reared in Glenn county, and married to Miss 
Lotus Snipes also a native of that county, he knows the 
people and all abbut the county's many agricultural at- 
tractions. Naturally he would be most zealous in seeing 
that the peace of his jurisdiction would not be disturbed, 
and for four years, he taking office in January, 1943, and 
was reelected last year vnthout any opposition, he has 
shown by his conduct that he is able to see that the peace 
of Glenn county is undisturbed. 

As an example of his capabilities we will recount the 
arrest some time ago of two notorious thugs. One of them 
was Walter (Dutch) Bannister and the other a com- 
panion named Sullivan. These two undesirables thought 
Glenn county would be a nice quiet place to lay away 
from the law. Bannister has a very checkered career. It 
was said he was a former body guard of the late and 
unlamented New York gangster. Dutch Schultz. He had

S. F. P. D. Christmas Party Big Success 



The first Christmas party for the children of San Fran- 
cisco Pohce Officers, held December 20, was a big success. 
Nearly 500 children of members of the Department ap- 
peared to take advantage of this big event, which will 
be an annual one from now on, and featured by the San 
Francisco Police Officers Association. 

Following is a statement made by Officer James Mc- 
Govern, president of the association, which tells very 
fully how successful the Kiddies Christmas party was: 

The afternoon of Friday, December 20, 1946, found 
the Larkin Hall of the Civic Auditorium swarming with 
many proud parents and their jubilant offsprings. It 
was the occasion of the FIRST CHRISTMAS TREE 
PARTY sponsored by the San Francisco Police Officers' 
Association, for the children of its members. Officer 
"Mike" Hickman, the hard working chairman of the 
affair estimated that some 470 (four hundred seventy) 
children were present. "Mike" and his committee feel 
that this response to an event originally promoted as a 
"feeler", warrants serious consideration as an annual 
activity for the Association in the years to come. 

The program officially started with the showing of a 
selected group of sound pictures (animated cartoons) 
chosen appropriately to coincide with the holiday at- 
mosphere. 

The pictures were followed by the presentation of an 
excellent "Kiddies" dancing review staged through the 
courtesy of Miss Adrienne Elaine's Studio of the Dance. 
The "tots" performed magnificently. Their numers de- 
lighted the audience both large and small. The pretty 
costumes added warmth and color to the entire per- 
formance. 

Santa Claus took time out from his heavy labors in 
"Toyland" to arrive and distribute individual boxes of 
candy to the many young and eager guests. A sufficient 
quantity of Ice Cream and Coca-Cola was provided to 
satisfy the unpredictable appetites of all the boys and girls. 

Paper hats were supplied and added emphasis to the 
gayety. Another reel of movies followed before the Party 
was officially brought to a close. 

Full credit for the success of the entire program is 
due the Chairman "Mike" Hickman. A vote of thanks is 
also due his Chief Assistants, Louis Sevenau, and Joe 
Curtin. 

Other members of the Association who lent a hand 
were Bill Curran, Eligio Marcilo, Ed Comber and Gerald 
Flynn. The Association is indebted to Mr. Kane of the 
Mayor's Office for assistance in securing the use of 
Larkin Hall. A word of appreciation is extended to 
Mr. Schmidt, Superintendent, Civic Auditorium and his 
staff who rendered much physical and moral aid when the 
real heavy work had to be done. 

At the present writing, all reports indicate that every- 
one was well pleased with the Christmas Party. Once 
again, the germ of an idea developed at a Board of Di- 



rectors Meeting of the Association, has grown into a real 
substantial activity. The Association is already taking 
stock and looking forward to an even bigger event for 
the Christmas Season of 1947. 



GEO. McARDLE NOW WITH 
RIZNIK & SON 

George McArdle, who last year was retired on pension 
from the San Francisco Police Department for disability, 
has found something to keep himself busy. He has taken 
a position with L. Riznik and Son, well known dealers in 
uniforms for policemen, firemen, bands, railroad men, 

George is a salesman, and with his affable manner and 
with the many friends he has in and out of the Police 
Department he is proving a good man for the Riznik 
Company. 

Former Officer McArdle joined the Police Department 
on January 21, 1921, and served five years with the 
Traffic Bureau, being a motor bike rider with a fine 
record for capturing speeders. He got hurt in a crackup 
going after a speeder and as a result of this accident he 
was forced to retire after more than 2'! years service with 
the Department.

VACAVILLE AND ITS POLICE CHIEF 



Vacaville is noted as the little community that turns out 
the first ripe cherries each year, and equally noted for 
other deciduous fruits of the surrounding country, as well 
as being well known for its dairy products, and other 
forms of farming. 

The rich soil in and around Vacaville produces many 




Chief O. E. Alley 

kinds of vegetables, and to process these crops the Basic 
Vegetable Products Corporation maintains a big plant 
which affords employment for 1000 people. 

The little city has a population of 5000, and all are 
gainfully employed, offering temptations to wandering 
larcenous inclined gentry. Every once in a while these 
crooks break out and get away with a few burglaries and 
robberies. But as Vacaville's veteran Chief of Police O. E. 



21 years on May 20. He was born in Missouri but as a 
baby his family brought him to California, landing in 
Santa Rosa. There he made his home until 29 years ago 
when he moved to Vacaville. He became a member of the 
Police Department as a patrolman and when there was a 
vacancy in that office he was selected to fill it, and he has 
done a mighty bang up job all these years. 

Vacaville is about a mile and a quarter square. Last 
month they opened up a new 30 some odd mile four-lane 
highway between Vacaville and Sacramento. A mile and 
a quarter of this new highway passes through the city 
limits of Vacaville. With the large volume of automobile 
traffic there are few accidents in the city limits, because

speeders and reckless drivers. 

Beside Chief Alley the membership of the police force 
is made up of the following :

The police cars are at present equipped with one-way

few of these law breakers, who escape his men, landed 
in the bastille. 

Chief Alley has been Chief of Police at Vacaville for 



radio but money has been allotted to change them to 
two-way. 

Since the start of this year parking meters have been 
installed and this has met with the approval of both the 
travelling public as well as the merchants of the town.

A. C. TILLMAN, SUISUN 
POLICE CHIEF 

Some 11 years ago the powers that be in Suisun, a skip 
and jump from Fairfield, on the Southern Pacific main- 
line, and at the head of Suisun Bay, appointed Officer A. 
C. Tillman as Chief of Police. He had been on the police 




Chief A, C. Tillman 

force for some three years and demonstrated his ability as 
a law enforcement officer. Since he took over the impor- 
tant position he has continued to be an able and efficient 
officer and with li s force he gives Suisun extraordinary 
police protection. 

Suisun is the headquarters where the Hunter Company, 
builders of cabin cruisers do their work filling orders for 
their high-class small vessels. 

Also Bower, Golden and Annis have a big plant here. 
The Standard Oil Company ma'ntains a wharf that han- 
dles the oil shipped doun the bay. It has a payroll of 
$20,000 per month. 

Suisun is a great gathering place for sportsmen. Striped 
bass fishing on the sloughs below the town furnishing great 
sport for the anglers, and duck hunters find good shooting 
on the duck clubs nearby. 

There are some 1500 people living in Suisun and these 
and such others that come into town have given but little 
worry to Chief Tillman and his force of two officers — 
O. U. Burdick and Tony Rose. 

Chief Tillman and other city officials before the war set 
up a fine coordinating system for the coiuity and it worked 
so «ell that the Sta'e Peace Officers' Association of Cali- 
fornia used it as a model for the coordinating of law en- 
forcement officers of this state. 

From Suisun there are shipped train loads of grain, cat- 
tle, beets and other products raised in the surrounding 
area, and through the alertness of the police forces nothing 
is ever stolen as it is brought in ready to be loaded on the 
freight cars.

OFFICER KRANIG, CHICO, HAS TWO SONS 
WHO ARE POLICE CHIEFS 



Upper Sacramento Valley towns go in for men of 
one family for their police work. 

We have in Chico Henry Kranig who is an honored 
and efficient member of the Chico Police Department. 
Officer Henry Kranig has two sons who are making good 




Chief Ben Kranu; 

in law enforcement. One, Wayne A. Kranig, is Chief 
of Police of Coming's Police Department, while another 
son, Benjamin Kranig, heads the Orland Police Depart- 
ment. 

Orland is a hustling little farm community of some 




Officer John Hostkttir 

17iO people. It is made up of people who have lived 
there for many years, or descendants of pioneers who 
settled the area. It is a law abiding town and you never 
hear of any important felonies being reported from 
Orland. 

Chief Kranig has a force of two men under him to 
preserve the peace and they do a first rate job, handling 
such problems as the vast automobile traffic that passes 



through the town, and other laws, designated as mis- 
demeanors. However, they are men of experience and 
understanding that they can well take care of any more 
serious matters of law breaking, such as burglaries, rob- 
beries or check passing. 

Officer Floyd J. Stanberry, is a recent appointee. He 
is the father of nine children, two of whom are married. 

The night man is Officer John Hostetter who has lived 
in Glenn county since 1912 and has been a member of 
the Police Department for seven years. 

Chief Kranig has the promise of a third man for his 




Deputy Sheriff Rav Nh.hrirt 

police force. He is a native of Glenn county, and he 
and his wife, who was Eldora Lewis, have three children 
and are very popular with the residents of the little city 
he keeps crime free. 

Sheriff Hal Singleton keeps a deputy assigned to Orland. 
He is Deputy Ray Nighbert, and for four years has 
v/orked out of the office of the Chief of Police. Deputy 
Nighbert has lived in Orland for over 23 years, being

engaged in the automobile business before he entered law 
enforcement work. He is well liked by all the people 
of his jurisdiction, except those who have a tendency to 
break the laws, and with these he has the understanding 
and ability to put in their place.

Corning is the center of one of the richest areas that 
will be found on the face of this earth. More than half a 
century ago a man with vision thought up the idea of 
cutting up the rich soils of the valley in which Corning 
is located, into small farms. He sold many of these farms 
and today we find it the central point into which over a 
million and a half dollars worth of wool, lambs, milk, 
butter, chickens, eggs, oranges, almonds, figs, peaches, 
apricots, plums, pears, prunes and olives are harvested. 
Of this is some $200,000 dairy prtxiucts and a half million 
from sheep. 

Corning was incorporated forty years ago, and its in- 
corporated area consists of some 1200 acres. 

Two hotels. The Maywood and Hotel Corning, are two 
hostelries one expects to find in a city with a hundred 
thousand population. They have fine service and reason- 
able prices and a visit to either one of them is something 
you will remember a long, long time, because of the ex- 
cellent treatment they extend to all visitors as well as

Crutcher held so well over five years. Chief Crutcher re-

signed to take a job with the State Police of Sacramento. 
Before being made Chief of Police Lee was in the service 
of the California Highway patrol. 

Chief Lee and his wife Jotty have lived in Williams 
for the past six month. He served in the U. S. Navy for 
three years. Thirty months of this service was as a Petty 
Officer First Class, Athletic Specialist. He became an ex- 
pert in instructing recruits in hand-to-hand combat, Judo 
and other rough methods of attack and protection. This 
background and his engaging personality which enables 
him to make friends readily, was what decided the city 
council of Williams to appoint him to the responsible job 
as head of their Police Department. 

His wife's brother, James Marshall, was Williams' 
Chief of Police some years ago.

PRESIDENT NO. CALIFORNIA 
PEACE OFFICERS 

The president of the Northern California Peace Offi- 
cers' Association is Constable Jack Forsythe of W^illianis 
township. He has served as Constable there for eight years 
and was re-elected without any opposition at the primary 
election last June. 

Constable Forsythe is a veteran of World War I, and 
had a son, John, who .served 31 months in New Guinea, 
in the South Pacific, during the late war. 

At his election to the Peace Officers' Assiociation presi- 
dency in Oroville last September, it was pointed out the 
activity he has exercised in the purposes and aim of the 
organizaiton which has done much to bring the peace offi- 
cers of the Sacramento Valley into closer cooperation, and 
to work for better laws and better conditions for the men 
charged with preserving the peace. He is a past master 
in Tuscan Lodge of Masons, and is very active in Masonic 
affairs. 

Deputy Sheriff WillianS Gaylord of Oroville is secre- 
tary of the Association and on his shoulders falls much of 
the work of seeing that the organization maintains the 
splendid record that it has had since its inception.

COMMENDATIONS BY S. F. P. D. CAPTAINS 



The following are copies of reports submitted to Chief 
Charles W. Dullea by Company Commanders relative 
to excellent police services performed by officers of their 
commands. The officers mentioned herein have been per- 
sonally commended for their attention to duty and for 
their fine police work rendered: 

"I respectfully call to your attention the following 
facts which indicate the unity of this department and 
the cooperation that exists between the members of the 
Bureau of Inspectors and the Uniformed Force. 

"On October 31, Albert Barr, a war veteran, was 
brutally stabbed to death in his home at 1170 Mc 
Allister by a negro. Within twenty-four hours the negro 
assailant, Clarence James, was arrested by members of 
the Homicide Detail of the Bureau of Inspectors, and 
confessed to this brutal murder. It was known that there 
was a second man involved in this murder. 

"On November 5, 1946, Officers Louis Bruno, George 
Hoover, and Eligio Marelli of the Northern Station ar- 
rested Vernon Johnson, a negro, who was the accom- 
plice of Clarence James in the killing of Albert Barr. It is 
true that Johnson did not actually participate in the stab- 
bing of the deceased, but he did enter the premises for the 
purpose of "paddy hustling" with James and is a con- 
spirator in the murder. This brief report does not describe 
the efforts put forth by these officers in order to procure 
the information that lead to the arrest of Johnson. 

"I respectfully suggest that the named officers be com- 
mended by you for the performance of excellent police 
duty. 

Respectfully submitted, 
George M. Healy, 
Captain of Police." 



"Sergeant Albrecht and Officer Fella should be com- 
mended for their alertness and attention to duty and for 
the efficient manner in which they handled this case. I 
respectfully recommend that they be commended for the 
excellent police duty performed. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Edward P. Donahue, 
Captain of Police." 

* * * 

"I wish to call to your attention the excellent police 
work and attentiveness to duty by Officer Joseph Hallisy 
on Wednesday, November 13. 

"At 7:15 P. M., Wednesday, November 13, while 
Officer Joseph Hallisy was patrolling his beat he observed 
flames coming from a basement window in the rear of the 
apartment located at Bush and Burrit Place. He immedi- 
ately ran to the fire box located at Bush and Powell and 
pulled the alarm.. He then returned to the apartment 
house, 625 Bush Street, and found the first and second 
floors covered with smoke. Officer Hallisy continued 
through the smoke and hammered on all the apartment 
doors with his night stick and informed the occupants 
of the fire. Shortly afterwards the members of the Fire 
Department arrived and with the aid of gas masks suc- 
ceeded in getting all of the occupants out safely. 

"Due to the observation and attentiveness to duty.

"About 2:25 A. M., Friday, November 15, Sergeant 
Albrecht and Officer Fella, while on radio car patrol, 
observed a Chevrolet sedan, license 32 G 444, parked in 
front of 106 - 3rd Street. This machine was occupied 
by three U. S. Sailors. This car was reported stolen in 
teletype message No. 8401 issued October 12, 1946, hav- 
ing been stolen on July 1, 1946, in Oakland, and the 
owner kidnapped and robbed. Sergeant Albrecht and 
Officer Fella took the three sailors into custody, charging 
all three with violating Sec. 503 of the Vehicle Code 
and En Route to Oakland. They booked as "Property 
for Identification" several pieces of jewelry found in the 
possession of the sailors. Subsequently, one of the sailors, 
Stanley Brzenzinski, was identified by the victim of the 
robbery and kidnapping, George Post, as one of the two 
suspects. A wrist watch and a ruby ring that was found 
in Brzenzinski's possession was identified by Mr. Post 
as property taken from him in the robbery. The other 
two sailors, Harold Murray and Arthur McColgan, were 
not involved in the robbery but were turned over to the 
Oakland Police with Brzenzinski.

"At 9:05 P. M., on Saturday, November 16, a hold-up 
occurred at Clay and Baker Streets, at which point two 
men alighted from an automobile and at the point of a 
gun held up Herman H. Hammerchlag of 3146 Clay 
Street and Solom S. Katten, 3233 Sacramento Street. 
The hold-up men hit the two victims over the head with 
the gun and took a brief case containing the day's receipts 
from a grocery store. 

William A. Harris, 545 O'Farrell Street and driver of 
a Yellow Cab, observed what had taken place and followed 
their auto until they were arrested. 

Jerry Gould, 64 Parker Avenue (17 years) gave the 
description of the auto and same went over the air. Officer 
Wilford S. Hickman and Erwin W. Leu, were dispatched 
to McAllister and Larkin Street with the two victims, 
where they found one holdup man in the custody of 
Reserve Police Officer Carl Frank, and Officer Fred Reis, 
both of the Northern Police District and Officer W. 
Hardeman, from Company K. The reserve officers had 
seen Motorcycle Officer Fred J. Joseph, of Company K 
chasing this machine and they followed. Joseph met with 
an accident and was thrown from his motorcycle and 
taken to the San Francisco Hospital. At McAllister and 
Larkin the two hold-up men stopped their car and ran 
on foot. One returned and was taken into custody by 
the Reserve Officers of Company E and Officer Harde- 
man of Company K. The arrested suspect gave the name 
of Hobbie Dowsey, 156 Langston Street, negro, 32 years. 

Officer Joseph's motorcycle was taken to Dudley Perkins 
Garage at 655 Ellis Street, by John Lowe, 210 Parkwood 
Street. Mill Valley, who phoned Sgt. Kindready of Com- 
pany K; he had found a brief case on the handle of the 
motorcycle; when checked the brief case contained the 
grocery receipts.

I wish to call these facts and circumstances to your at- 
tention so that the proper commendation shall be given to 
all who participated in the capture of these hold-up men. 
It was fine team work between the Yellow Taxi Cab 
driver and Reserve Officers as well as Officers Hardeman, 
Joseph, Erwin Leu and Wilford Hickman; each are de- 
serving of commendation for the part he played in the 
capture. 

In addition to this I respectfully request that a letter he 
sent to William A. Harris, .S4'i O'Farrell Street, Yellow 
Cab driver, for his assistance and identification of hold-up 
men; also a notation should be entered on his card in the 
files at the Bureau of Permits for future reference."

"I respectfully call your attention to the following 
excellent arrest made by members of this company: 

At 10:55: p M., Saturday. December 21, Officers 
Vincent A. Cooney and Wallace Young received informa- 
tion that some men were trying to dispose of furs in the 
vicinity of Eddy and Leavenworth Streets. With Officers 
Frank Fit-patrick and Robert Crowley they were ques- 
tioning one Louis Lipson who was found sitting in a 
Plymouth Sedan, in front of 440 Eddy Street, when the 
auto was approached by Francis Dellano and Manuel 
Dellano. Manuel Dellano was carrying a gray overnight 
bag containing one silver fox fur. The men told con- 
flicting stories as to how they came into possession of 
this fur. Checking the auto, the officers found a large 
number of tools which could be used in committing 
burglaries. Manuel Dellano stated that he owned the 
auto but under the seat was found a license plate 7K792 3 
and registration certificate showing that the auto was 
registered to George R. Ostoja, Hollister, California. A 
search was made of Dellano's room at 420 Eddy Street 
and there the officers found a Kolinsky fur and a light 
gray coat trimmed with fur. Neither of the men would 
make any statement regarding the furs or the auto. They 
were booked at this station for violating Section 647 of 
the Penal Code, $1000. Vagrancy and En Route to 
Sacramento, California. In addition to the above, the 
following arrests were made at 440 Eddy Street, each of 
the arrested persons being suspected as accomplices of 
Dellano : 

At ftSO A. M., December 22, Edward J. Walcott, 
Ortega Street, was arrested by Officer V. A. Cooney and 
Officer Edwin Nevin. 

At 6:?^0 A. M., December 22, Calvin Coombs and Joie 
Baldwin, both of 440 Eddy Street, arrested by Sergeant 
Charles Lyons. Officers Howard Ross, Wesley Thulandcr 
and Charles Nesbitt. 

As a result of these arrests, I have received information 
that a number of burglaries committeed in this city have 
been cleared up, therefore, I respectfully request that 
the officers mentioned be commended by you in orders 
for the excellent police duty performed."

Minutes of Meeting on December 12, 1946. 

The Northern CaHfornia Police Communications Of' 
ficers' Association held their regular monthly meeting in 
Marin County at San Quentin Prison as guests of Warden 
Clinton Duffy. Unfortunately Warden Duffy was called 
to Sacramento, however. Executive Secretary Charles 
White and Mr. Cheetham extended us a hearty welcome. 

President Don Hossack opened the meeting. The 
minutes of the previous meeting were read and approved. 

Reports of committees followed. 

The Fairfield Police Department requested clearance to 
increase the power of their Main Station, KAGR, operat- 
ing on 2422 kcs, from 50 to 100 watts, also letters from 
Chiefs of Police of the Cities of Vallejo, Napa, and 
Benicia approving this power increase. On motion by 
Jim Lewis and seconded by George Burton, the members 
present voted in favor of the power increase from 50 to 
100 watts. The Alameda County Sheriff's Office requested 
frequency clearance for the following : ( 1 ) A Repeater to 
be installed on Mt. Diablo operating on 73.42mcs. (2) 
An Inter-Department Point to Point System, operating on 
73,900 kcs, (Class Two Experimental). (3) A mobile 
frequency on 1 55. 25mcs. The above requests are part of 
a co-ordinated system being developed in this area. On 
motion by Henri Kirby and seconded by Merrill LeBouef, 
rhe members present granted clearances on the above 
requests. Mr. Landers requested frequency clearance for 
the City of Napa in the 154 to 156mc band. This request 
is part of a co-ordinated system for this area and on 
recommendation of the Engineering and Frequency Com- 
mittee, 155.49 mcs for both Main Station and mobiles 
was submitted to the members. On motion by McMurphy 
and seconded by Henri Kirby, the members granted clear- 
ance for the above request. Jim Lewis spoke on some of 
the problems the Engineering and Frequency Committee 
is encountering, regarding frequency clearances in the 
154 to 156mc band. Considerable thought is being given 
to the promotion and development of co-ordinated com- 
munication systems, plus the necessity of keeping inter- 
ference at a minimum. 

A motion by LeBouef, seconded by Lewis, directing 
the secretary to pay Stark-Rath Publishing Co. $42.52 
for stationery supplies. 

Sergeant McKee reported on the frequency change for 
the Main Stations of the California Highway Patrol. All 
Main Stations North of San Luis Obispo will operate on 
1690KCS. C.H.P. Main Stations in the Southern end of 
the State will operate on 1682KCS. This change will 



improve the interference problem now prevalent on 
1682KCS. 

Nomination of Officers for 1947 was next in order; 
George Burton nominated for President: Merrill LeBouef; 
Chas. Simpson nominated Geo, Burton for Vice President. 

Jim Lewis nominated Al Taggart for Secretary-Treas- 
urer. 

Nomination for Board of Directors as follows: (Four 
to be elected.) 

Jim Lewis nominated by Bud Hossack 

Manuel Trinta nominated by Al Taggart 

John Hartnet nominated by Manuel Trinta 

Ray Gada nominated by Chas. Simpson. 

The four present members were nominated for a second 
term by Jim Lewis. They are Walt Harington, Stewart 
Naschke, Henry Kirby and Chas. Simpson. 

Nomination of Officers will remain open until election 
at our January 9, 1947, meeting.

ot proceeding with plans for our Reno, Nevada, meeting. 
With the National APCO Conference scheduled for Los 
Angeles in 1947, Bud suggested cancellation of our Reno 
Plans, and place all our efforts toward having a 100% 
turnout for the APCO Conference in Los Angeles. The 
subject was tabled until after election of officers at our 
next meeting so all members could vote on the issue. 

Brower McMurphy read a very comprehensive and 
detailed report on the APSO Conference, Buffalo, New 
York, and the F.C.C. Engineers Meeting in Washington, 
as compiled and prepared by Bill Whiting (Radio En- 
gineer for Kern County, California ; Member of the Radio 
Advisory Committee, and President of the California 
Police Radio Association). This report is too voluminous 
to be included in the minutes, however, it should be read 
by everyone associated with Police, Fire and Forestry 
Communications. 

Our Technical Discussion opened with Jack Maxwell, 
(Motorola) inviting all members to witness the operation 
of a Texicab communications system in operation at San 
Rafael after the meeting. Rox Penlon (Aerial Engineer), 
furnished some interesting data on new Radio Towers 
which are Navy Surplus Equipment, and very reasonable. 
Mott Brunton (Link), spoke of Municipal regulations 
effecting the use of certain Radio Towers, such as Ground 
breakaway and Wind Tolerance specifications. Fred Deet- 
kin (General Electric), announced he would distribute 
1947 General Electric Diarys to all members after the 
meeting, and would mail these Diarys to all members 
who are absent. W. D. Brill (W. D. Brill Wholesale 
Radio Supply) , reported on the Radio Parts picture for 
1947. Russ Hossack (Crystal Engineer), gave a very fine 
talk on crystals. On completion of his talk, Russ agreed 
to answer all questions within his scope, and the boys

really opened up. Result: We all know a lot more about 
this vital phase of our profession. 

The meeting was recessed for luncheon. 

President Hossack introduced Mr. R. Teets (Associate 
Warden of San Quentin Prison), who welcomed the 
members and explained the excellent Rehabilitation Pro- 
gram and Policy for the inmates, which Warden Clinton 
Duffy and his associates inaugurated. Mr. Teets arranged 
a tour of the entire prison for all members. 

After an excellent lunch the meeting was resumed, and 
Bill Koch (State Forestry), who attended the recent 
F.C.C. Engineers meeting m Washington rendered a full 
report. He suggested more interest should be shown in 
frequencies tentatively assigned to the Police services in 
the 1000 to 1300mc band. George Burton heartily con- 
curred with this suggestion. 

After too long an absence, Don Wood, Chief of Police, 
San Anselmo, was present and as usual held the interest 
of all members with his reports. We were all glad to see 
Chief Wood return, as the pressure was beginning to 
tell on Jim Lewis. 

Sergeant E. McKee (C.H.P.) will be host to this or- 
ganization for our next meeting, January 9, 1947, to be 
held in Sacramento. 

Meeting was adjourned so all could make the tour of 
the Prison. Our thanks to Lieutenant Jacobs, and Guards 
Al Kichner and C. N. Burton for extending themselves to 
explain and show us everything during the tour of this 
institution.

DIXON'S CHIEF A HOME- 
TOWN BOY 

Some two years ago, following the death of Chief of 
Police H. C. Grove in an automobile accident, the city 
fathers of Dixon were faced with finding a man who 
could give the little city of some 1800 population as fine 
police service as the late Chief had given it for years. 

They did not have to go outside of their own town to 




Chief Lester Peters 

get that man, and they named Officer L. Peters to the 
vacant position. Chief Peters had served on the local 
Department for a year before he was appointed to the 
top police post. 

He is a native of Dixon, and married a Dixon popular 
girl, Margaret Simpson. 

There hasn't been a felony worth mentioning, com- 
mitted in Dixon since he became Chief. With his two 
man force he gives the city's area of a mile square com- 
plete patrolling. 

Many people from the farming districts, which are 
famed for their sheep, cattle, fruits, nuts, grains and 
dairying, gravitate to the town of Dixon. But they are 
all well behaved and law abiding. They find in the little 
city, along the Southern Pacific, stores and markets with 
everything they need in the way of clothing and food 
and plenty of recreation for those who seek recreation. 
Moving picture houses with the latest pictures, parks 
and playgrounds. 

Packing houses handling the crops of the area give 
employment to many men and women, and until U. S. 
Route 40 was diverted last month, thousands upon thou- 
sands of automobiles passed through Dixon. Yet Chief 
Peters states he hasn't had a serious accident since he 
became head of the Police Department. 

Dixon may be off the main highway but is still an im- 
portant gathering place of the people from farms and 
ranches near the town. And Chief Peters and his small 
force of police will continue to give the maximum of police 
service.

Inspector Iredale Heads Bunco Detail 



Among the important changes of the San Francisco 
Police Department taking place during last year was the 
retirement of Lieutenant Charles Maher, after long and 
efficient service in the Department, most of which was 
devoted to the Hall of Justice. Here he served for years 




iNSPtCTOR Charles Iredale 

as chief aid to the late Lieutenant John Fitzhenry in 
charge of the Chief of Police outer office of those days. 
Later he was transferred to the Detective Bureau, being 
appointed a Detective sergeant, and worked on some of 
the main Details, but on the Check Detail, with the late 
William Armstrong, he drew much praise for his work 
in this line. He became an outstanding authority of the 
modus operandi of bad check passers, and forgers and 
his record of bringing to book violators of this form of 
crime is an imposing one. 

For many years he was in charge of the Bunco and 
Pickpocket Detail, and here mastered the intricate working 
of this sort of thievery. Lieutenant Maher is a man 
who can get along with people, and he always had the 
closest of cooperation from the men who worked under 
him or with him. 

Among the members of his Bunco and Pickpocket 
Detail was Inspector Charles Iredale, who for a quarter 
of a century has been a credit to the law enforcement 
agency he has made his life's work. For fifteen years he 
has been a member of this important police detail, and 
he knows the ways and means of this despicable class of 
crooks as but few men do. He has been assigned by his 
superior officers to cover many big conventions, fiestas, 
racing meets and fairs. In every assignment he was given 
he has fulfiilled the expectations of those who sent him 
and brought joy to the outside police officials with whom 
he worked, by keeping all events covered with the aid of 
his partner, formerly Inspector Morris Harris and in later 



years Inspector Frank McCann, free from pickpockets 
and bunco men. 

So when Lieutenant Charles Maher took his pension 
it was but natural that Chief Charles W. Dullea and 
Captain of Inspectors Bernard J. McDonald would settle 
upon Inspector Charles Iredale to take over the manage- 
ment of the Pickpocket Detail. Since he assumed his 
new responsibilities he has continued to keep up his high 
batting average of efficiency. He is most highly spoken 
of by the management of Bay Meadows for the work 
he and his men have accomplished in keeping the light 
fingered gentry and the phoney tipsters out of that famed 
bay area track, during the days of racing. 

Inspector Iredale joined the Department in 1922 and 
was assigned to Richmond Station, but he remained there 
for only one year. Because of effective work and the 
demonstration of his ability as a police officer and investi' 
gator he was brought into the old Detective Bureau, and 
was detailed to the Homicide Detail, then under the 
now Chief Dullea. He worked on this Detail for seven 
years when he was transferred to the Pickpocket Detail. 

Inspector Iredale has the following members of the 
Bureau of Inspectors on his Detail, all men with excellent 
records with the Police Department : 

Inspectors Thomas Reagan, Harry Cook, Frank Mc- 
Cann, Louis Linss, George Page, George Dyer and 
Michael Chrystal.

ANTIOCH POLICE ALL VETERAN FORCE 

Chief ot I'olice Harry Boycr now has a Police Uepait- 
ment of seven men, besides himself, and every one of them 




CniEr Harry Bovlr 

has seen active duty in the dififereiit U. S. Armed Forces 
during the war that ended last year. 

I'he line-up ot his force is: 

Captain M. Lamb who was in the Army ; 

Lieutenant Leornard Reed, in charge of Traffic. U. S. 
Air Force; 

Lieutenant Searson, Military Police; 

Night Sergeant Eugene Carlson, Marine; 

Sergeant H. Bogan, U. S. Army; 

Sergeant G. Ackerman, U. S. Army; 

Officer R. Mandeville, U. S. Army. 

There are plenty of industrial activities in Antioch and 
this calls for plenty of work on the part of the Police 
Department. That the Chief and his men meet this re- 
quirement is evidenced by the fact that crime in all classes 
has been well handled with arrest of such offenders who 
took a chance at law breaking at the busy river town. 

There will be found more college graduates on An- 
tioch's Police Department than any other department in 
this state, large or small.

CHIEF REX CLIFT OF FAIRFIELD 

Three and a half years ago Fairfield's city council was 
faced with filling the office of Chief of Police when a va- 
cancy occurred. They wanted a man with experience in 
small city police experience. One who had worked in a 
small community as a police officer. They found their 
man in Officer Rex Clift, then on the Pinole Police De- 
partment. He had been an officer in that little oil town 
for three years and for the three years pre\ious he was a 
member of the Martinez Police Department. He was se- 
lected for the vacant post and has filled the job so well that 
he is apt to remain there as long as he wants to stay. 

Fairfield is the county seat of Solano County and enjoys 
a fine reputation as the center of some high class farming, 
producing a \ariet>' of crops in grain, fruits, nuts, vege- 
tables and cattle. 

The to\\ n has a permanent population of some 3000 
people, but it is often expanded many hundreds more by 
the personnel of the permanent \J. S. Air Base near the 
town. 

Through the main street of Fairfield runs \J. S. High- 
way 40, and it carries thousands of motorists weekly, yet 
because of the alertness of the police department accidents 
are rare. 

Chief Clift has a force of four men under him. They 
are Sergeant E. S. Lair, Officers E. Martin, Harvey 
Ihrailhill and James Barrett. 

Felonies are something very rare, because the police give 
this town's mile square area complete coverage 24 hours of 
the day. 

There are unbelievably few misdemeanors, which are 
ably handled by the department. 

The department has its own two-way radio equipped 
cars, serviced by their own broadcasting station, and the 
boys who man these cars give some wonderful help to out- 
side peace officers by picking up cars a police broadcast 
announces is wanted. 

Chief Clift has a well-trained and alert force of officers 
and since he took over the job of Chief of Police he has 
given Fairfield fine law enforcement. He is mighty highly 
thought of by the people of that little Solano city.

U. S. MARSHAL VICE 

(Continued from Page 9) 

A friend once remarked: "When you walk down a 
Sacramento street with George Vice, you hear everyone 
greet him." 

The marshal's acquaintances aren't confined to Sacra- 
men to; he is well known throughout the state because of 
his political activities. 

During his twelve years as foreman of the state school 
textbook warehouse in Sacramento, twenty years as Sac- 
ramento county purchasing agent, and thirteen years as 
marshal, Vice also served as vice-chairman and member 
of the state Democratic Central Committee and chairman 
of the Sacramento County Democratic Central Com- 
mittee. 

No prisoners escapes can be found in the marshal's law 
enforcement record; and with one exception it is free 
of violence. Tragedy struck November 25, 1937 — when 
congenial Deputy Raoul Dorsey was fatally shot in per- 
formance of his duties while accompanied by two Oak- 
land police officers. 

Vice and his deputies have transported, without inci- 
dent, some of the nation's most hardened and desperate 
criminals, most of whom were headed either to or from 
Alcatraz prison. 

"We feed and treat them well, but never give them 
a chance," he explains. 

A vital bit of advice to all law enforcement officers, 
Vice states, is the use of extreme caution in handling 
juvenile offenders. "They are the most unpredictable 
subjects the officer must deal with," he warns. 

People inherently overlook a man's good work, but 
spring eagerly at a chance to criticize him for an error. 
Lawmen never ask for praise, and the ordinary citizen 
never gives it until the first time his life or property has 
been endangered. 

Everyone will agree, however, that the laws which 
protect us would be meaningless without someone to en- 
force them. George Vice and men like him have gone 
beyond the ordinary requirements of citizenship.

GOLDEN GATE PARK 

(Continued from Page 8) 
he quit, not even when he neared his 100th year. He 
was the boss and he left a monument that will be as lasting 
as the Pacific Ocean. However, he could foresee the time 
when his work would be ended. He knew someone else 
would have to continue the job he had done so well. 
Realizing this he selected a young man by the name of 
Julius Girod. Young Girod had the know how of park 
work, and did so well in carrying out Superintendent 
McLaren's ideas that in 1929 the boss had young Girod 
made assistant superintendent. 

When John McLaren passed away the Park Board 
selected Girod as his successor and he assumed his higher 
duties on January 25, 1943. 

It was a good selection, for Superintendent Girod, 
knowing what his superior had done and what he planned 
was enabled to keep up all the many things that goes to 
make the Park the success it has been. He has introduced 
some ideas of his own that have met with general approval. 

Naturally such a gathering place of people would call 
for some police attention. Officers detailed to police the 
Museum, Aquarium and Academy of Sciences. 

A mounted detail of officers under the direction of Ser- 
geant Grover Hawkins give the Park a 24'hour patrol, 
and radio cars give it plenty of attention. 

The mounted detail is made up of Sergeant Martin 
Casserly, Officers Emmett Hanley, Victor Wilcox, Joel 
Marston and Walter Nelson.

Predators, human, .minul and bird, call for an expert. 
F(ir the later two the expert must know how to use a shot 
gun, and Officer Albert S. Harlow is assigned to this work. 
Hardly a week goes by that he doesn't bag a couple of 
hawks and a dozen crows who make life miserable for 
quail and song birds. 

On September It, 194^, Chief Charles W. Dullea 
-signed Inspector John H. Sturm from the Bureau of 
Inspectors to Golden Gate Park to have supervision over 
investigations and complaints of vandalism, trespassers, 
tlower and shrub thieves, and careless automobile drivers 
who prefer using the lawns and paths to the asphalt drive- 
days, and which damage many trees and flowering plants. 

Since taking his new post Inspector Sturm has brought 
ill flower stealers, reckless drivers and many other violators 
of the park laws and rules. 

Before joining the Police Department Inspector Sturm 
was employed in the park and knows every foot of that 
scenic spot of this city. 

He joined the Police Department in 1923 and was as- 
signed to Richmond Police District then under command 
of the late Captain John Mooney. He did not last more 
than a year pounding a beat for he displayed such rare 
ability for bringing in burglars and other of the higher 
type of criminals, that Captain of Detectives Duncan 
Matheson had him brought into the Detective Bureau. 

Here, after serving a hitch on the night shifts, he was 
issigned to the Burglary Detail. While on this Detail 
and teamed up with the late Inspector Daniel Fogarty he 
arrested the notorious "Match Burglar" duo, who pulled 
over 200 jobs in this city. They got their name as "Match 
Burglars" from their use of matches to find their way 
through houses the>' entered. In every house they left a 
trail of burnt matches. Inspectors Sturm and Fogarty got 
them in the act of burglarizing a Mission Terrace home, 
and they were put away for a nice long spell. 

He was on the Banking Detail, accompanying payrolls, 
,md during the year he served not one payroll robbery

took place. Also the Opera Detail with Inspector Jack 
Cannon, the Pawnshop Detail and the Auto Detail then 
in charge of the now Captain of Inspectors McDonald. 

In 1929, with Inspector Harry Husted, Inspector Sturm 
became the first operator of a radio equipped patrol car. 
It was a one-way set, serviced by radio station KJBS. 

While working with retired Inspector Husted, he took 
part in the arrest of an embezzler from Minneapolis. The 
pair were cruising the streets when they noted an autO' 
mobile with a Minnesota license. Instinctively they felt 
this was a "wrong" car. Their suspicions were strength- 
ened by the driver and a woman companion taking a look 
at the police car, not a look of curiosity but one of fear. 

The Inspectors drove the Minnesota car to the curb, and 
questioning each of the occupants separately and getting 
two different stories took them to the Hall of Justice 
where the man, James Werre, confessed he was wanted 
for embezzling $7500 from a Minneapolis bank. The lady 
had come along just for the ride. Mr. Werre was re- 
turned to Minnesota. 

Some 1 5 years ago a new Boosters Detail was organized 
and Inspector Sturm was in charge. Working with In- 
spector Jess Ayers during ten years they cleared up hun- 
dreds of thefts from parked automobiles. 

John Sturm is a man who makes but mighty few enemies 
and he'll keep on making friends for the people who 
operate Golden Gate Park by jerking out of circulation 
those who break the laws.

RETIRED SERGEANT 
JOHN LYNCH DIES 

L<ist Ucceniber there passed away another of the olci 
time San Francisco police officers, when Sergeant John 
Lynch, retired, answered his last roll call. 

Serjeant Lynch was born in Carin, Ireland, March 5, 
1863. He joined the Police Department October 12, 1891, 
before the city went under charter government. He was 
promoted to corporal then to sergeant, the latter rank on 
August 24, 1914. He was pensioned November 1, 1931, 
after forty years of honorable service. No black marks are 
found on his record as a police officer, and he was com- 
mended many times for outstanding service. 

The latter part of his term in the department was 
served in the Southern District, and here he was known 
as an able and humane officer, who gave the breaks to the 
unfortunates who make up the population of Skid Row. 

When President de V'alera of Ireland visited this city 
some >ears ago. Sergeant Lynch was detailed to look after 
him. After his retirement he made a trip to Ireland and 
was surprised to get a call from Ireland's President to 
\isit the distinguished leader of Eire. President de Valera 
recounted many pleasant instances of his San Francisco 
visit and told Sergeant Lynch that this city was one of 
his favorites. 

Among the survivors of Sergeant Lynch is Frank Lynch, 
bail botid broker, whose office on \\'ashington Street is at 
a place that was formerly operated as a tailor shop and 
when the elder Lynch was assigned to Central Station over 
a quarter of a century ago he had his uniforms made and 
cared for in this tailor shop. 

There are but few left of those who donned a star of a 
police officer before 1900 rolled around, but like Sergeant 
Lynch, they contributed their share to making this a peace- 
ful citv.

Since the days of '49, San Francisco has enjoyed a unique 
reputation ... a city of light and color . . . whose fame has 
spread throughout the world. Today, as we enter a new era, 
the Port of San Francisco should become the focal spot of 
the Pacific. The nine counties surrounding our glorious Bay, 
operating as one unit, cannot help but make this area a 
dynamic spot in the field of commerce and trade. Let us all 
work to achieve our goal of greater opportunities 
for Northern and Central California.

THEFTS FROM STORES 



Stealing from stores by shoplifters and dishonest em- 
ployes, passing of worthless checks and forging charge 
account names have been problems for every large de- 
partment store in this country. Yet today, in San Fran- 
cisco this form of law breaking, despite the large increase 
in population and the great influx of out of town buyers 
who come into the city to make purchases, has been 
well curbed. 

No longer are the professional shoplifters able to oper- 
ate here. It has been years since any such crooks have 
been able to pull a job. The capture of many of them, 
years ago, their conviction and imprisonment has served 
as an impressive lesson to those who seek an easy way to 
gain a livelihood. 

During the war stores experienced an upsurge in worth- 
less checks, occasioned by the thousands of new comers 
who engaged in war work. Heavy pay checks were the 
rule and an overalled clad workman or a woman in a set 
of old slacks and a sweater would produce checks for a 
healthy sized sum. 

It didn't take the store owners long to find a way to 
stop this illegal practice of offering bad paper. Today, 
despite the increased volume of business with its attendant 
increase in the number of patrons, "bum" checks are 
below the pre war era. Like the professional shoplifter, 
many of the passers of bad paper have been jailed and 
sent to prison.

However, there is a class who engage in pilfering stores 
that is not confined to any one class, as people of all ages 
and all walks of Hfe have been and are still being caught 
at it. 

Wealthy women, who stood high in society, and re- 
spectable girls of good moral character, as well as the 
poorer class of men, women and girls have been arrested 
for shoplifting. 

Edward Dalton, protection superintendent for the Em- 
porium, who is completing 20 years in that position, has 
noted during his long service that with the disappearance 
of the professional shoplifter, he has seen the stealing by 
drug addicts, which in years gone by was a mighty big 
problem, reduced to an almost undiscemable minimum. 

Superintendent Dalton, who has a force of four women 
and two men working days, and special officers working 
nights, helping him keep thievery of all forms from the 
five floors and basement devoted to selling, in the big 
Emporium, which hires from 2200 to 2400 people, says 
the bad check passers still give him and his force a bad 
time, though not as bad as during the war years. He states 
that not too frequently some one tries to make purchases 
on some one else's charge account, but because of the 
system followed by all up-to-date stores such law breakers 
are soon on their way to an explanation with the police. 
Dishonest employes, he says, has fallen off to almost 
nothing in comparison to years ago.

But the impulsive shoplifter among people who have 
plenty of this world's goods, don't have to steal, and those 
who don't have much of this world's goods and can't 
resist stealing that which they long to have, are still a 
problem that calls for the closest of attention. The policy 
of department stores, a policy followed by the Emporium, 
is to deal understandingly with this class of larcenists, and 
seldom do they go to jail. Working with the Shopping 
Detail of the Police Department, now consisting of In- 
spectors James Mitchell and James O'Neill, out of the 
Pawnshop Detail, such culprits are given a lesson on the 
evil of their ways that has resulted in their never being 
brought in as repeaters. 

Today Superintendent Dalton says juveniles are giving 
stores in this city the greatest of trouble. The pilfering 
by teen agers has become so bad that to curb it stores 
have agreed with the Police that any juvenile arrested 
for stealing be booked to the juvenile home, or placed 
under the care of that agency, after the parents have been 
advised of the wrong doing of their offspring. 

Edward Dalton came to the Emporium in 1927. He 
was born in New York, and enlisted, during World War 
I, in the military intelligence service. After the war he 
became a federal narcotic agent for a short spell, and came 
west, landing in Los Angeles where he entered the em- 
ployment of the banking department of the ADT, tracing 
stolen money orders and chasing pickpockets. He built 
up a fine reputation as a successful investigator and when 
he came to San Francisco in 1927 he landed the job as 
protection superintendent. At that time he had 1 .i men 
and women on his staff. 

During his twenty years in his present important job 
he has made countless friends among the peace officers, 
not only of San Francisco, but throughout the state, and 
attaches of the District Attorney's office, as well as judges, 
municipal and superior court, hold him in high regard.

TWO SACRAMENTO POLICE 
CAPTAINS RETIRE 

The past year has seen the retirement of two of Sacra- 
mento's best loved police captains. 

E. L. (Wildcat) Roberts took a disability pension be- 
cause of an eye injury and James H. Darwin left the 
force to take life easy for a while. 

Roberts was one of the most widely known members 




Capt. E. L. Roberts 

of the local department. He earned his nickname by his 
slambang tactics in staging raids during prohibition and 
it stuck through the years. 

He retired reluctantly at the age of 51 after struggling 
for more than a year to overcome the effects of an eye 
injury. He slammed a police car door shut a year and a 
half ago and a splinter of glass flew into his eye. Al- 
though he lost the sight of his left eye he continued to 
work for more than a year but finally, after repeated 
warnings from his doctor, he took a pension. 

During his 25 years on the force Roberts took an active 
part in shooting scrapes, riots, fights and raids by the 
score, always in front of the men he led. He held most 
of the important positions in the department at one rime 
or another. 

Formerly a semi-professional ball player, he played with 
the police nine for years. He was an international officer 
of the Footprinters Association and the police representa- 
tive on the city retirement board. 

Darwin retired after 12 years as head of the traffic 
bureau. He gave no specific reason but said he planned 
to take life easy at his summer home at Lake Tahoe. 

Only 54, when he retired, he had been a member of 
the force for 32 years and was one of the youngest police- 
men ever to apply for a service pension. Twenty-four of 
his service years were spent in the traffic bureau. 

While he was head of the bureau it tripled in size. 
He was particularly proud of the fact a safety contest 
the traffic division sponsored in 1937 resulted in Sacra- 
mento's winning first place nationally for cities of its 
size for safety.

BAY BRIDGE RECORDS 

(Continued from Page 7) 
cisco-Oakland Bay Bridge radio station is just about "head- 
quarters" for the State Highway Patrol in CaHfornia. 

It's station KRBU operating as a 500 watt station. 

J. D. Hossack is the supervising technician and under 
him are three senior radio technicians. 

Here at the toUgate is a complete radio repair shop 
for both transmitting and receiving equipment used by 
the State highway patrol, embracing automobiles, motor- 
cycles and repeater stations. 

KRBU is the main radio station for the bridge area 
which takes in all of the immediate San Francisco Bay 
counties, some nine in all. 

But it is more than that. It maintains radio equipment 
from King City on the South to the Oregon Hne exclusive- 
ly for the California Highway Patrol. 

It covers the Redwood Empire along the Northern Cali- 
fornia coastline. 

It directs the activities of the main transmitter of 
KANY at Vallejo. It takes care of four repeater stations 
— Mt. Diablo, Mt. Pierce near Eureka; Sacred Oaks out- 
side of Willits and Mt. Hamilton south of San Jose. These 
stations transmit and receive. They pick up messages that 
otherwise would not get to the "bridge" because of inter- 
vening terrain, high hills. 

And when radio-equipped cars in this vast territory go 
wrong they come to J. D. Hossack and his assistants for 
proper repair. All members of KRBU are radio experts 
holding U. S. government licenses. KRBU at the bridge 
too-gate is the main radio shop headquarters covering 
more than half of California. 

Bridge Damage Slight; Only Fifty 
Fatalities in Ten Years 

There have been only two major property damage acci- 
dents to the bridge since opening day and 50 fatalities, 
an outstanding record. 

On April 13, 1945, a passing truck, carrying iron pipe, 
tossed an iron pipe across the third rail, carrying the 
electric current. A fire started and caused $50,000 damage 
before brought until control. On September 12, 1943, a 
navy plane severed a cable off Yerba Buena island. The 
damage, $12,677. 

Two navy pilots were killed in the crash and it took 
weeks to repair the damage. 

Meanwhile traffic rolls across this mighty toll bridge at 
an average of more than 67,000 vehicles per day. 

And take your hat off, fellow citizen, to the guardians 
of the bridge, Captain Franck and his gallant, alert crew 
of the California Highway Patrol and those middle-aged 
chaps, Howard C. Wood, principal bridge engineer and 
his assistant, C. S. Hamilton, maintenance who keep this 
great work of man in perfect operating condition 24 
hours a day.

to find out what the prisoner is sent to prison for. They 
have to find out what the man is sent for and get a history 
of the case. The average peace officer in the State is 
very cooperative with the Adult Authority. 

The only time you hear of a parolee is when he commits 
some crime and those that do are a very small percentage 
of the men released on parole. You never hear of the 
parolee that makes good because the Adult Authority 
has to protect them. 

In the year 1946 2540 men came to San Quentin on 
committments from different jurisdictions. Of that num- 
ber 225 were parolees. This is only 8 4/5% of the total. 
Altogether there were 724 parolees returned to prison, so 
the difference between 225 and 724 were parolees that 
were picked up by the parole officers, who thought they 
should be back in prison before they committed a crime. 

Your old time convict does not want parole. He wants 
to do his full time and be discharged because if he obtains 
parole and is picked up, the Adult Authority can sentence 
him for his maximum term. 

Governor Warren at the Attorney General's conference 
in 1939 stated: "Felons, for their own well-being and for 
the best interests of society, should not be sent out into 
the world, unless under supervision." That is the object 
of parole. We try to rehabilitate them in prison and 
then send them out under supervision. 

The Adult Authority likes to have peace officers enter 
their meetings. Parole is not leniency but is a scientific 
method of getting a man out of jail and into a community

and helping him adjust himself under the guidance of 
trained parole officers. 

Mr. Moore was then thanked by Sheriff Gleason for 
his interesting talk. 

Special Agent H. C. Van Pelt of the local Federal 
Bureau of Identification Office, then made a few remarks 
in which he stated that he wished to correct any false 
impression that might arise from the speech. He stated 
that Director Hoover has not recommended the abolish- 
ment of parole. He has been critical of ill-advised parole 
and other forms of executive clemency. He specifically 
IS against any parole where society or the public is injured 
by said parole. 

There were no invitations for the holding of the next 
meeting, so Sheriff Gleason stated that if no invitations 
were tendered, he would invite the membership to meet 
at the Santa Rita Branch of the Alameda County Jail, 
but would hold the invitation open in case of other in- 
vitations. 

Sheriff Gleason then called upon District Attorney 
Ralph Hoyt to induct Chief Flohr, Chief Wisnom and 
Captain McDonald into office for the year 1947, and 
Sheriff Gleason then turned the meeting over to Chief 
Flohr. 

Chief Flohr then thanked the membership for the 
honor conveyed upon him and made the following ap- 
pointments to committees :

JOURNAL PRIZES 

(Continued from Page 1 2) 

Marksman — Officer A. Palimieri, first with 1795; second 
Officer E. Eldrup, 1688; third Officer Ray Cooper, 1672. 

Officers Schaugaard, Dunphy, O'Leary and Palimieri, 
respective winners of the four events, were each presented 
with a $2 5 United States saving bond, by Opie L. Warner, 
editor of the Police and Peace Officers' Journal, at a 
gathering of members of the Department held on January 
9, at the range. 

Rangemaster Emile Dutil presented the editor and the 
four winners, and expressed appreciation for the prizes 
as he did for those of the Call-Bulletin. 

The final of five matches of the year 1946 of the San 
Francisco Police Department was as splendidly conducted 
by Rangemaster Dutil and his corps of assistants as have 
all the matches been conducted during the year. 

The following report of Rangemaster Dutil on the 
activities of the Range during the 12 months of 1946 
indicated how huge a proposition it has become, and 
how important it is to law enforcement officers by the 
opportunity they have to perfect their marksmanship. 
The most important of equipment needed by an officer 
of the law is his pistol and equally important is the skill 
in using it. The new range, the finest to be found any- 
where in this or any other land, gives these officers of 
the law a chance to perfect themselves in handling their 
sidearms. 

Under the rules of the Department every member 
must practice and qualify as to ability to hit the mark. 
That the members are following this rule will be observed 
by the following report:

Under the direction of able Rangemaster Dutil the *" 
programs of the Range are conducted with care and 
follow all rules, national and local, governing pistol 
matches. The range has attracted wide attention and 
lavish commendations for the treatment accorded visiting 
teams, and it is recognized by all top pistol experts of 
the nation as tops. 

As an indication of how highly is Rangemaster Dutil 
thought of by outside authorities on shooting we call 
attention to his appointment with ten other men through- 
out the nation to a board of the National Rifle Association 
of America, which has some 250,000 members scattered 
throughout the United States. This board or committee 
is charged with the gathering of information and sug- 
gesting plans for improving interest and give members 
the best in pistol and rifle matches. 

Rangemaster Dutil left to attend the first committee 
meeting February 4 and to attend the meeting of the 
Board of Directors February 8, all expenses being paid 
by the NRA. 

Inspector Jack Ahem of the San Francisco police ran 
up the high aggregate for 1946:1056. He entered all 12 
of the tournaments. His average led all the rest in the .38 
National, 282.91. Decimals only, however, separated him 
and Captain Henry R. Jacobs of the California Highway 
Patrol, 282.83.

THE CANDID FRIEND SAYS— 

(Continued from Page 11 ) 
of being able to give a tough order or two to some of their 
erstwhile superiors. 

In less than a year from now the Civil Service Commis- 
sion will have announced the names of at least one hun- 
dred eligibles for the position of sergeant in the San Fran- 
cisco Police Department. That eligible list will be of vital 
importance to hundreds of patrolmen — being on or off that 
list may determine the life career of some of that grand 
group of citizens who are deservedly called : '"The City's 
Finest." 

The examination will show just one thing — who knows 
his police routine in all its phases and who does not. 
Excuses are out. If the candidate has prepared well he will 
be at the top or live end of the list of eligibles. Partial or 
complete remissness on his part, in the matter of prepara- 
tion for so grand a prize, is the only proper excuse for the 
man whose name is not shown on the eligible list. 

During the months preceding the examination for pro- 
motion from the rank of patrolman to the rank of sergeant 
this Journal will present "true or false" questions from 
the following named standard police publications from 
which the San Francisco Civil Service Commission takes 
its police promotion examinations:

Red Cross Drive Starts in March 



Page 73 



"Be his friend for life!" 

This is the key of the appeal which Red Cross will 
carry to the people of San Francisco during the month 
of March for its annual fund campaign. It is a Red Cross 
reminder to all citizens that their obligation to the men 
whose lives were interrupted by years of war is by no 
means fulfilled. 

March will be Red Cross month throughout the nation. 
The national fund goal is $60,000,000. San Francisco's 
share has been set at 967,000. Heading the campaign in 
the bay city is Sydney G. Walton, vice-president of the 
Matson Navigation Company, whose appointment was 
recently announced by San Francisco Chapter Chairman, 
Garrett McEnerney II. Walton has chosen a corps of 
outstanding San Francisco civic leaders to aid him, includ- 
ing Jerd Sullivan, San Francisco banker and head of the 
Police Commission, as his first vice-chairman. 

The public is particularly urged to befriend "for hfe" 
the 250,000 war wounded still confined to military and 
veterans' hospitals. The Red Cross is at their side every 



day to minister the comforts and aids which help them 
to pass their dreary days. 

"The peacetime job of Red Cross is still large," said 
Walton. "That fine organization must continue its ex- 
tensive service to the war wounded, the 500,000 troops 
still overseas, the veterans who have come home to un- 
expected emergencies. And with the growing accident

rate in this nation Red Cross must be ready wherever 
disaster may strike in any of the nation's 3,000 counties. 

A yardstick of the vast peacetime job Red Cross is 
performing is the statistical record of the national or' 
ganization for 1946, which follows: 

Over 5,000,000 service men and their families assisted, 
some with grants or loans totaling over $10,000,000. 

Almost 8,000,000 veterans aided by various chapters. 

Over 50,000 community groups, under Red Cross 
guidance, cheering the war wounded in hospitals. 

Nearly 150,000 Americans aided by Red Cross Dis- 
aster Service during 271 major disasters. 

Almost 1,500,000 volunteers serving 34,000,000 meals, 
making 4,800,000 garments, answering 1,665,000 calls for 
Motor Corps Aid. 

Twenty million Junior Red Cross members sending 
hundreds of thousands of gift and health boxes to young- 
sters in other lands. 

San Francisco Chapter's statistics also are impressive.

MANY S. F. POLICE PENSIONED 

Since the pension the San Francisco Police Department 
was voted went into effect in 1945, there has been 129 
members taking advantage of the retirement provisions. 
There were pensioned in 1945 70 members and in 1926 
129. This year there has been an addition of half a dozen 
more. Of those granted retirement on pay 8.^ were for 
service pensions. 

This has left many vacancies in the Department which 
Chief Charles W. Dullea is ready to fill when the present 
suit of a group of veterans taking the fireman and police- 
man examinations is settled. In addition to filling up the 
Department's personnel which is now down to 1252 
regular police officers, including all ranks, he hopes to 
add more officers to cope with the growing demand of 
the Police Department for keeping San Francisco a high 
spot in law enforcement.

POLICE COMMISSIONER'S RECORD 

(Continued from Page 5) 
know the men working under them can handle any 
criminal matters that stick their heads out of the dark- 
ness, but they are greatly concerned with the automotive 
traffic problem that confronts them today. 

It is true there was a decline in the death rate from 
auto accidents, through the wholehearted effort of the 
police to make this possible, it is admitted that this death 
toll is an awful penalty to pay for the reckless and care- 
less driver as well as the careless pedestrian. 

It is the aim of the police adniinistration that each and 
every police officer make it a special point of business to 
lessen this needless taking of life, and though they may 
not be assigned to the efficient Traffic Bureau, let them 
see that violators are brought before the courts. Only by 
law enforcement where arrests are made and adequate 
penalties swiftly meted out can there be any great re- 
duction of death and injuries from auto accidents. 

Rules and laws may be devised with the idea of curbing 
speeding, reckless driving and driving while intoxicated, 
but only by sure and quick action by the police and the 
courts can this evil be abated. No law can give brains 
to a man or woman who drives a car, but law enforcement 
will show them the error of their ways. 

We know that the Police Commission wants this evil 
reduced. It will be a nice thing if each and every member 
of the Department would hit the ball to bring this about 
and make the fourth year of these three public spirited 
public officials come up with the lowest record for deaths 
and injuries by automobiles.

F. B. I. WANTS THIS MAN 
Re: James W. Moore, True Name, Woodrow Law- 
rence Hawkins, was Chec\ Passer and Impersonator 

Many police departments and the FBI are looking for 
Hawkins who has been extremely active passing fraudu- 
lent checks in the central and northern parts of California 
for the past two months. He is using the name James W. 
Moore. His checks have usually been in the amount of 
l.if made to the order of cash and bearing the number 
1507. All the checks have been handwritten personal 
items and have been drawn on the Bank of America, Day 
and Night Branch in San Francisco, the Bank of America, 
8th and J Branch in Sacramento, and the Bank of America, 
Richmond Branch. 

Moore has operated in Berkeley, Burlingame, Oakland, 
Sacramento, San Leandro, San Rafael, San Mateo, Stock- 
ton and Richmond. His method is to enter a small store 
or service station and exhibit an interest in buying mer- 
chandise. He offers a check in payment, requesting change 
in cash. When questioned for identification MooRE will 
present a dark blue book from a wallet type credential 
case. One side is blank cellophane, the other bears the 
words Department of Justice, Special Investigator, and 
contains the name J.ames W. Moore with a photograph 
and single fingerprint. He also has a badge which he 
sometimes displays. Moore spends a long time with his 
build-up — usually thirty minutes or longer. He has been 
cashing fraudulent checks for many years and is extremely 
cool in his approach. MoORE at one time was a cook and 
has been employed in restaurants and motels. 

The attached FBI Identification Order number 2076 
contained this subject's description and photograph. At 
the present time Moore does not wear a moustache and 
is reported to be quite heavy set in appearance. He 
speaks with a soft southern accent but does not use par- 
ticularly good English. He has often been noted smoking 
a cigar. The tip of his right index finger is mashed. 

All Northern California Police Departments are being 
advised of the presence of this notorious and skillful 
operator. Since this subject usually commits his crimes 
against small business people in the smaller towns, it is 
suggested that the police departments receiving this letter 
might desire to notify stores in their communities to be 
on the lookout for this man and to attempt to arrest him 
if he appears. A federal warrant is outstanding in Ashe- 
ville, North Carolina.

WHY 

POWER SN GIN sens 

00 MAO 

We put up more miles of new electric lines 
in 1946 than in any previous year. We are 
ditching-in more pipe for new gas customers 
than we have ever done before. But we are 
not yet caught up with increased demands 
for gas and electric service to all customers. 

^ Shortage of Equipment 

It requires 24 to 36 months to get delivery 
of essential transformers for substations and 
power lines. We are getting only a part of 
the gas pipe we need. 

© Shortage of Transportation 

Autos and trucks of every type needed to get 
men and materials on the job are as difficult 
to get as passenger cars. 

^ Shortage of Labor 

The company is operating schools to train 
repairmen and line construction personnel. 
We need many more linemen. 

It takes a lot of Ingenuity Engineering to 
maintain a dependable degree of service to 
our many gas and electric customers. At 
Eureka, for instance, we have converted half' 
a'wrecked ship into a steam'electric general' 
ing plant. We rebuild, salvage and scour the 
market for needed material new or used. 
During this new year of 1947 we hope a lot 
of needed items will become more plentiful 
for all of us.

Captain oF Inspectors Bernard J. McDonald 



B\ Opie L. Warner 



February 16th, 1940, was a red letter day at the Hall 
f Justice, Charles W. DuUea, after eleven years as head 
if the Bureau of Inspectors, and a total of twenty-five 
cars in the Inspectors' Bureau, had just been appointed 
i^hief of Police. 

Since September 5rd, 1929, the new chief had been 
lead of the Bureau of Inspectors and, during that time. 




Cai't.mn Bernard J. McDonald 



amongst the department's personnel and selected Captain 
Bernard J. McDonald as Captain of Inspectors. 

As a patrolman, the new chief had had some service in 
the Richmond Police District but had come up through 
the ranks of corporal, sergeant, lieutenant and captain in 
the Bureau of Inspectors in the Hall of Justice. His choice 
for Captain of Inspectors had served as a patrolman in 
the Harbor Station, after which, like the new Chief, he 
had been attached to the Bureau of Inspectors, first in the 
business office of said Bureau and later as in charge of 
the Auto Theft Bureau. 

In the Auto Theft Bureau, under the newly appointed 
Chief of Police for more than a decade, Bernard J. Mc- 
Donald made a record of recovered and stolen automobiles 
second to none in the United States. 

Chief Dullea likes men of action. He had chosen as 
his successor an outstanding man of whom it might truth- 
fully be said: "The eye of the master doth more work 
than both his hands." 

Captain McDonald does not believe in that pseudo 
glamor which makes a beautiful halo for loquacious In- 
spectors. He assigns a case to an Inspector or a team and 
awaits results, not cover-up reports. 

Like Chief Dullea, Captain McDonald became a mem- 
ber of the San Francisco Police Department in 1913, 
and, from 1922 to 1940 rose, through the ranks of Cor- 
poral, Sergeant, Lieutenant and Captain, to head one of 
the greatest municipal department's inspectors bureaus in 
the United States. 

A thorough student, and a thorough police officer, like 
the present Chief, Captain McDonald amply prepared for 
his promotions up through the ranks. Thus we find him 
a rookie patrolman in 1913; a Corporal in 1922; a Ser- 
geant in 1923; a Lieutenant in 1924; a Captain in 1932 
— and Captain of Inspectors in 1940. 

Captain McDonald is able, kind, courteous and virtually 
monosyllabic. Even after a few moments in his presence 
you feel both you and he have business to do — and to be 
done now, minus the preliminaries. That is just why he 
accomplishes so much without the least semblance of 
fanfare. 

For years Captain McDonald has been secretary to the

POLICE AND PEACE OFFICERS' JOURNAL 



March. 1947_ij 



Bay Counties Peace Officers' Association, in which or- 
ganization he is so popular that at the annual elections 
he never has had an opponent. He also has many staunch 
friends in the International Chiefs of Police, whose an- 
nual conventions he has attended for the past seven years. 
He has held and is still on important committees of the 
State Peace Officers' Association, and never misses a 
meeting. 

The San Francisco Bureau of Inspectors is second to 
none. Seven years ago under Chief DuIIea it was tops; 
and today, under the steady hand of Captain McDonald, 
it still holds that rating. 



"DON'TS" DISLIKED BY BURGLARS 
AND PICKPOCKETS 

Don't leave a note on the doorbell announcing that 
you are out and will return at a given time. 

Don't leave your door key under the mat or over th^ 
door. 

Don't pull all the shades of your apartment when you 
go out; it is an invitation for thieves to enter. 

Don't, when you hire new servants, take them into 
your confidence until you can be reasonably sure they 
are honest. 

Don't fail to note the distinctive marks on your 
valuables. This greatly assists the police in their search. 
Keep recorded the number of case and movement of your 
watch, also markings on your jewelry. 

Don't leave valuable clothing or jewelry in a rear 
room while you are entertaining friends in the front. 

Don't allow strangers who represent themselves as gas 
inspectors, etc., to enter your house unless they can show 
credentials. 

Don't leave valuables in your house when you go on a 
vacation. Burglars can enter any house if they have time. 

Don't think an open window is safe from intrusion 
because it is not near a fire escape. 

Don't give strangers information regarding your neigh- 
bors. 

Don't close your house or apartment for any consider- 
able time without being sure that the windows and doors 
are securely fastened — don't rely on ordinary locks and 
nail the windows if necessary. Heavy bolt locks are most 
secure for doors. 

Don't go on your vacation without giving notice to 
police headquarters. The police are glad to give your 
property special attention. 

Don't carry your pocketbook in your hip pocket. 

Don't become careless in a crowd — keep your coat 
buttoned and your eyes on your pockets. 

Don't unnecessarily show your money in banks, theatres, 
railroad depots, steamboat landings or other public places. 
Criminals of the worst type lurk in such places waiting 
for suitable prey. 

Don't fall asleep in public places. In doing so you are 
risking the loss of personal property. 

Don't, when shopping, lay your handbag or valuables 
on the counter while looking at goods — ^this is the op- 



portunity nimble fingered thieves are looking for. 

Don't carry your handbag suspended by a strap fro 
your wrist. Hold it tightly in your hand — then the thie| 
can neither open the bag nor cut the strap.

ROOKIE POLICEMAN A HERO 

As an example of the high type of young men who 
are entering the profession of law enforcement, we present 
Officer Bernard L. Shea, 23 years of age. 

Officer Shea was sworn in as a member of the San 
Francisco Police Department on February 24, after gradu- 
ating from the Police Academy. On his first day as a ' 
police officer he demonstrated the courage and the bravery 
that is so necessary and so common for the hazardous 
work of a policeman. 

He was patrolling his beat near Taylor and Market 
street when his attention was called to a man running 
from Cator's jewelry store. Officer Shea took up the 
chase and coming upon the flying man he closed in on 
him, not having time to draw his gun, The man, an 
ex-convict who gave the name of Stanley Paliwoda, 42, 
had time to draw his rod and he did so letting loose two 
shots, which took effect in Shea's body and arm, a third 
shot hit a woman passerby striking her in the ankle. i 

Fellow officers came upon the scene and Shea turned li 
his man over to them and then waited for the ambulance 
which rushed him to the San Francisco Hospital. For 
days his life hung in the balance, his spleen had to be 
removed, one kidney had to be taken out. More than 
twenty police officers gave blood that was so necessary, 
and at this writing young Shea seems to be on his way 
to recovery. 

He may never take up his duties as an officer again, 
but he will always be held up as a hero, who followed the 
time honored tradition of fearless police officers to stop : 
at nothing in their pursuit of the duties their calling im- 
poses, even at the risk of their lives. 

Paliwoda, who is accused of taking two rings from the 
Cator jewelry store, maintains he did not do the shooting ' 
but the police have plenty of witnesses who say otherwise. 

In the meantime all members of the Police Department 
and every law abiding citizen are pulling for the full 
recovery of the brave rookie who was willing to make the 
supreme sacrifice in the performance of his duty.

Ij. B. Maloney New U-S- Secret Service Chief 



James J. Maloney, Chief of the United States Secret 
'Service, Treasury Department, has had a long career in 
the law enforcement field. 

After serving with the famed Lafayette Escadrillo in 
the First World War he returned to his home city, Bing- 




Chief J, B. Maloney 

hampton, N. Y., and joined the Binghampton Police 
Department Later he became a member of the New York 
State Police and for six years participated in scores of 
investigations of murders, robberies and other violations 
af the State laws. He served a short term as Undersheriff 
of Broome County, New York, resigning to accept an 
ippointment as a Secret Service Agent March 9, 1931. 

Mr. Maloney was stationed at Detroit, Michigan, until 
August, 1935, when he was made Agent in Charge of the 
Western New York territory, with headquarters in Syra- 
use, later in Buffalo. In February, 1937, he became 
Supervising Agent of the Fourth Secret Service District, 
:overing the State of New Jersey and Del,i"/are, and in 
[uly, 1938, he took charge of the New York district, the 
nost active in the country. 

Under his direction agents smashed numerous counter- 
'citing "syndicates," which brought tumbling down the 
esses suffered by victims of fake bills. While in New 
fork Mr. Maloney was directly responsible for the safety 
)f many visiting notables, including the King and Queen 
)f England, Madame Chiang Kai-shek, Princess Martha 
)f Norway, Queen Wilhelmina of The Netherlands, Sergio 
Dsmena, president of the Philippines, and Winston 
!3hurchill, British Prime Minister. In addition, Mr. Ma- 
oney was charged with the safety of several members of 
:he family of the late President Franklin D. Roosevelt 
n and near New York, and supervised security plans for 
:he President when at Hyde Park or elsewhere in the 
)tate. 



From 1940 to 1943 he was appointed by Elmer L. Irey, 
Chief Coordinator of Treasury Enforcement Agencies, to 
head the coordination in New York of the Treasury's 
Intelligence Unit, Narcotics Bureau, Alcohol Tax Unit, 
Customs Agency Service and U. S. Secret Service. On 
December 7th, 1941, Mr. Maloney as District Coordinator 
swiftly assembled personnel of all the agencies and moved 
to seize all Japanese aliens, their properties, businesses 
and records. Following the declaration of war with Ger- 
many and Italy he directed the seizure of all Axis-owned 
firms, such as the General Aniline Company, I. G. Farben 
Industries, the Agfa-Ansco Corporation and many others. 

In September, 1943, he was summoned to Washington 
and appointed Assistant Chief of the Secret Service, suc- 
ceeding the late Joseph E. Murphy who retired after 41 
years of service. As Assistant Chief, Mr. Maloney was 
given direct supervision of protection of the President 
and suppression of counterfeiting. He accompanied Pres- 
ident Roosevelt to Hawaii, the Aleutians and Alaska, and 
was with President Truman during the United Nations 
Conference in San Francisco and at the "Big Three" 
meeting in Potsdam. 

Mr. Maloney was appointed Chief of the Secret Ser- 
vice on January 1, 1947. 

On assuming his new position Chief Maloney issued 
the following letter to the army of men who make up the 
U. S. Secret Service: 

"To my friends and associates 
in the Secret Service: 

"As your new Chief I want you to know that although 
I am very proud of the honor which accompanies this 
responsible post, I also realize that whatever success comes 
to the Secret Service and to me depends to a great extent 
upon each and every one of you. All of us together are 
the Secret Service. And all of us will keep rigl''- on doing 
everything we can to maintain and improve the fine repu- 
tation which our organization has enjoyed for 82 years. 
As many of you know, I have 'run out' notes, interviewed 
payees and second endorsers, spent many days and nights 
on shadow work, written daily reports, filled out forms 
including expense accounts, been transferred, and have 
griped about this or that as an agent, so I have a pretty 
good idea of what the agents and clerks in the field are 
up against. During the past three years I have been intro- 
duced to the other side of the story — the administrative 
side, here in Washington. I can tell you that there are 
many phases of our work which you in the field never 
hear about, but which present problems just the same. 
However, since I know your situation from personal ex- 
perience, and can keep a thumb on the pulse in Wash- 
ington, I hope sincerely that I will be able to administer 
the affairs of the Service efficiently, fairly, and for the 
good of all its personnel."

Sheriff H. P. (Jack) Gleason Takes Over Alameda County's 



New $1,500,000 Prison Farm, Which He Aptly 
' An Experiment in Human Rehabilitation 



Call! 



By B. S. (Sandy) Sanders 

Veteran Retired Police Reporter, Editor, Author and 

Advertising and Public Relations Executive 



"I've been waiting for an opportunity like this for a 
number of years and am confident that here will be laid 




Here's Close-up of Sheriff Jack Gleason who conceived the idea 

of leasing Camp Shoemaker, former disciph'nary barracks of the 

U. S. Navy, located 7 miles out of Livermore. 

the foundations of one of the great experiments in 
human rehabilitation and I trust with far-reaching results." 

It was Sheriff H. P. (Jack) Gleason of Alameda County 
speaking. He had just taken over the county's new prison 
farm — one million five hundred thousand dollars (1,- 
500,000) worth of rich farm lands and sturdy buildings, 
the former Camp Shoemaker, disciplinary barracks of the 
United States Navy. The cost to the county under the 
lease signed by Commodore S. J. Michael of the 12th 
Naval District and Harry Bartell, chairman of the board 
of supervisors, is $1 a year. 

In signing the dollar a year lease. Chairman Bartell 
lauded the foresight of Sheriff Gleason in conceiving the 
possibility of obtaining and using the camp as a prison 
farm saying: 

"This move will result in saving millions of dollars to 
the county and eventually the farm will be self-sup- 
porting." 

But Sheriff Gleason looks beyond the property value, 
the dollar value of the new prison farm. In it he finds 
an ideal spot, an ideal environment, for "an experiment 
in human rehabilitation." 

"Tobacco Road" 

The "experiment" is already under way. The main 
thoroughfare that divides the group of buildings has al- 



ready inspired the prisoners to give it a nomenclature all 
their own. It is "Tobacco Road." The very name helps 
the morale of the prisoners. The name suggests a freedom 
that the prisoners would not enjoy in a barred jail with 
its usually crowded quarters. 

The deactivated camp now Alameda County's prison 
farm comprises 57 acres proper with 105 acres adjacent 
rich farm lands. On highway 50, just seven miles west 
of Livermore, the farm is under the eyes of all passing 
motorists, within easy access of metropolitan Oakland. 

Eliminates Block System 

It is designed to eliminate the cell block system for 
short-term prisoners. In place of cells there are the more 
than 100 acres of agricultural land where the prisoners 
will find healthful and inspiring pursuit close to the soil, 
a freedom that Sheriff Gleason knows will in most cases 
promote a rehabiUtation morally, mentally and physically. 

Included in the farm are eight barracks with housing 
facilities for 125 men each, along with a woman's dormi- 
tory where the misfits of femininity, too, will have a

operation of the county superintendent of schools and staff. 

An auditorium which will seat 2000 persons is another 
oustanding feature of the new prison farm. Sheriff Gleason 
knows how much wholesome entertainment means to the 
lawbreaker who has not yet slipped into the "habitual 
class."

Attorney-General Howser Looks to Peace OFficers for Aid 



Last month Attorney-General Fred N. Howser took 
notice of two important matters of more than ordinary 
interest to law enforcement officers of this state. One is 
the asking for recommendations for an executive minded 
man for coordinator of law enforcement and three names 




i 



Attorney General Fred N. Howser 

from which a man can he selected for coordinator of the 
State Disaster Council. The other is his assured coopera- 
tion with peace officers of this state in the suppression of 
venereal diseases. 

Following are press releases issued from his office in 
San Francisco, relative to the two subjects referred to 
above : 

No. 1: — 

Recommendation of three applicants for consideration 
to fill the position of Coordinator of Law Enforcement 
of the State Department of Justice, has been s-olicited by 
Attorney General Fred N. Howser from the California 
Peace Officers Association. 

Similar recommendations have also been requested from 
the California State Disaster Council. 

Howser pointed out that the overall responsibility of 
the position is to develop and administer the State Law 
Enforcement Aid Plan under the California State Dis- 
aster Act; to consult with local peace officers on mutual 
aid problems; and to coordinate the activities of sheriffs 
and chiefs of police for the adequate enforcement of the 
laws of the state. 

"Inasmuch as this man," Howser wrote, "directly rep- 
resents me and the State Department of Justice in its 
efforts to serve you as law enforcement officers, I fully 
desire that this job be filled by one who is compatible to 
vour association and one whose training will make the 
work most eifective." 

Howser advised that the position is subject to Civil 
Service requirements. He asked, therefore, that the man 
recommended be one who would measure up to the re- 



quirements of the position and have a likelihood of meet' 

ing the Civil Service specifications. One of the qualifica 

tions, he stated, was that the applicant for the position 

shall have been a chief or assistant chief administrative 

officer for a police department or sheriff's office of a city 

or county with a population of 75,000 or more, or armed 

forces experience comparable to that of a Provost Marshal. 
* * * 

No. 2 :— I 

Calling on all California law enforcement officers for '^ 
renewed effort in combating venereal diseases, Attorney 
General Fred N. Howser today stated that his office would 
cooperate to the fullest extent on the immediate closing 
down of all houses of prostitution. He criticized the preva- 
lence of light fines being levied on prostitutes and said 
that the laws calling for quarantine of all known cases of 
venereal diseases should be vigorously enforced. 

He stated that the annual cost of venereal diseases to 
the taxpayer of the United States amounts to more than 
the entire fund expended annually for the construction 
of highways throughout the country. 

"Shocking but true," he said, "is the well documented 
fact that syphilis alone does one hundred times more dam- 
age than infantile paralysis." 

He stated that there was a need of concerted attack on 
these diseases with the cooperation of all law enforcement 
agencies with the alcoholic beverage industry, State Board 
of Equalization, local sheriffs and district attorneys. 

The announcement regarding the stepping up of en- 
forcement of venereal disease control laws was given in 
an address made in Vallejo February 20, under the aus- 
pices of the Social Hygiene Institute.

San Mateo Gets More Police 



Starting his fourth year as Chief of the San Mateo 
Police Department, Robert O'Brien has had no trouble 
convincing the City Council and the Mayor that the 
Peninsula is growing and that San Mateo in particular 
has a lot more people than it did three years ago. As a 
result of this grov^th, and the increased law enforcement 




Chief Robert O'Brien 

problems the Council in January voted four more police 
officers to Chief O'Brien's force, and on March 15 an 
examination for eligibles was held and from the list of 
successful candidates two more men will be selected for 
the Department. This will bring the number on the force 
to 32. When Chief O'Brien took over, three years ago 
following the retirement of the late Chief Thomas Burke, 
he had a force of 23 members. 

In addition to the four men put on the force, another 
woman was added, she being Mrs. Ruth Johnson, who 
will serve as matron and general clerk. 

The new men appointed to the Department are : 

Irving and George Condon, two sons of Patrick Condon, 
retired member of the Chicago Police Department, who 
lives now in San Mateo, Frank Bennett and John 
Blanchfield. 

There has during the winter been a slight flurry of 
burglaries in San Mateo, but Chief O'Brien and his boys 
have rounded up all those who have pulled "jobs." Notable 
was the capture of the boys who broke into the Smith- 
Marquard Drive-in in San Mateo and went out with the 
safe and $1400. The arrest of this small gang also cleared 
up 11 burglaries in San Francisco. 

Also the capture of L. Callendar, daylight burglar, 
out of San Quentin a year. This ex-con was caught 
within a few blocks of where he pulled a job. 

Mrs. C. Von Gunten, who lives at 320 Parrott Drive, 
San Mateo, was home the afternoon of March 4, when at 
1 :20 o'clock her front door bell rang. She did not answer 



the bell and then she heard the back door bell ring. She 
started for the back of the house and saw a Negro coming 
up the stairs from the cellar to the kitchen. She locked 
the kitchen door and went out the front door. The man, 
seeing his progress was barred by the locked door, went 
around to the front door again. In the meantime Mrs. 
Von Gunten was at a neighbor's calling the police. When 
she returned to her home the man was gone. 

Officer James Smith and rookie Officer Blanchfield got 
the call from headquarters on their radio prowl car. They 
were a short distance from the Von Gunten home, and 
headed at once for that address when they spotted a 
Negro ambling along. They took him in custody, and 
going first to the Von Gunten residence confronted the 
man with Mrs. Von Gunten. She identified the man, 
who gave the name of Callendar, as the one she saw in 
her basement. Taken to the station a frisk revealed about 
$2000 worth of jewelry taken from the Parrott street 
address and several pawnshop tickets. Mr. Callendar said 
he lived in Oakland. He has been out of San Quentin 
about a year and has mighty good chances of checking in 
there again on his way to Folsom. 

Chief O'Brien is loud in his praise for the cooperation 
he receives from Chief Charles W. Dullea and his Bureau 
of Inspectors especially for the assistance rendered by 
Inspector James Johnson and his Burglarj- Detail.

NEW POLICE COMMISSIONER 

By Opie L. Warner 



March, 1947 j) 



On February 1 5 the announcement, most unexpected, 
was made of the resignation from the San Francisco Police 
Commission of its President, Jerd SuUivan. Mayor Roger 
D. Lapham at noon that day announced SulHvan's suc- 
cessor to be Edward V. Mills widely known insurance 



to public service at considerable personal sacrifice." 

In his letter of resignation to the Mayor Commissioner 

Sullivan declared: 

"I can honestly say that San Francisco has a good and 

efficient Police Department and is well administered under 




Commissioner J. Wesley Howell 
'hlew Commission President 

executive, at present controller of the Fireman's Fund 
groups of fire and casualty insurance companies. 

Genuine regret over Commissioner Sullivan's resigna- 
tion was expressed throughout the Police Department, 
for during the more than three years he has served as its 
presiding officer he has devoted untold hours toward 
keeping the Department at the high point of efficiency 
it occupies today. A vice president of the Crocker First 
National Bank, a man who has given generously, of his 
time, talents and money for civic betterment, a former 
grand jury man, he brought to the police job he took at 
the urgent request of Mayor Lapham, a wide knowledge 
of this city and its problems. He tackled his police post 
with the same enthusiasm as he has demonstrated in his 
important banking job. He was ever at the front for 
bettering the working conditions of the department and 
his achievements in this respect will be long treasured 
by the men and women who have benefitted from his 
and his associates on the Commission efforts in their 
behalf during the past three years. 

Commissioner Sullivan gave as his reason for depart- 
ing from the Police Department as a press of business at 
his bank — the Crocker Bank took over an Oakland Bank 
increasing the burden of its vice president so much that 
he could not give the Police Commission post the time 
the position warrants. 

Mayor Lapham. in accepting his Commissioner's resig- 
nation told Jerd Sullivan that "the city needs men like 
vou, willing to contribute their knowledge and experience

Commissioner Edward V. Mills 
Appointed Last Month 

the supervision of its Chief Charles W, Dullea." 

When Commissioner Mills was sworn in by Clerk 
Herman van der Zee, there were present among a group 
of spectators Commissioners J. Wesley Howell and E. L. 
Turkington. After the ceremonies these two Commis- 
sioners with their new member held an informal meeting 
in the Mayor's office and Commissioner Howell was se 
lected as president. The first meeting of the board was 
held on February 24. 

Commissioner Mills was horn in San Francisco, on 
February 16, 1889. His mother was also a native San i 
Franciscan. His parents were living on 24th street out 
in the Mission District, when he was born, and he got 
his education in the schools of that area. 

In 1911 he entered the insurance field and by his maS' 
tering of the many details of this exacting profession he 
progressed rapidly. He was called to the Atlantic sea- 
board for some important insurance work, and for nine 
years was engaged in his chosen field of endeavor in New 
York, Newark, N. J. and Philadelphia. 

Returning to San Francisco in 1930 he joined the 
Fireman's Fund Insurance Company and progressed from 
secretary to secretary-treasurer, to treasurer-controller to 
vice president, a post he now holds, and at the same time 
carries on the duties of controller.

Insurance, with its group of five distinct insurance com-

Hanford's Police Chief Gives Good Tips 



Under the heading of "Know Your Hanford Police 
Department — Its Relationship to the Public and Its Field 
of Personal Service," Chief R. O. Stanley of the Hanford 
Police Department, has prepared for distribution a pamph- 
let setting forh many things a law abiding citizen should 
do in helping prevent crime. 
In a foreword he states : 

The Hanford Police Department is a municipal service 
and law enforcement agency. It is responsible for your 
safety and for the security of persons and property. 
Every lawbreaker infringes upon your security by vio- 
lating laws enacted for the protection of all citizens. Your 
problems in this field and the use of lawful authority to 
solve them are police matters. 

Patrolmen and radio equipped police cars patrol the 
city and in the course of a year respond to thousands of 
calls — to the scenes of crimes, disturbances, accidents and 
to other places where service may be needed. The De- 
partment's effectiveness depends in a large measure upon 
the prompt and intelligent cooperation of all citizens. This 
pamphlet has been prepared to invite your attention to 
some of the measures which contribute to public security. 

Following are: — 
DON'T look for a police officer patrolling his beat, if a 
crime has been committed, or if you see any- 
thing suspicious. Telephone Hanford Police 
Headquarters at once and give all the informa- 
tion you can. 

DON'T Leave your business place at night, unless one 
light is left burning. A thief usually will avoid 
entering a business place where there is a light 
burning. 
DON'T forget to try your door when you leave to see 

that it is locked. 
DONT neglect to examine your rear doors and windows 
as well as the front entrance and windows. 
Many burglars gain entrance to stores by way 
of the rear. 

DON'T install fasteners on windows unless they are of 
an improved type. Those which are easily 
opened by the use of a knife or other flat in- 
strument are of no value. The use of burglar 
alarms on windows and doors is suggested. 
DON'T neglect to install a new lock if your keys have 

been lost or stolen. 
DON'T leave your roof doors or skylights unfastened. 
DON'T fail to have safes, cash registers and valuable 
merchandise exposed to the view of the police- 
man on the beat. Also have store or premises 
partially lighted at night so that officer on patrol 
may be able to observe the interior, thereby 
affording protection to your property at night. 
DON'T permit the accumulation of money. Make fre- 
quent deposits in the bank. 
DON'T display valuable merchandise in your windows or 
showcases at night. 



DON'T store valuable articles in your basement. 

DON'T leave money in cash registers at night, leave the 
drawer of same open. Many cash registers have 
been destroyed by thieves in search of money. 

DON'T leave your keys with the janitor or other em- 
ployees of building, 

DON'T fail to notify the janitor or caretaker or tele- 
phone the police, upon observing a suspicious 
person loitering about the premises. 

DON'T fail to have a buzzer installed on doors leading 
from the street, especially when working in the 
rear of store, or alone in store. 

DON'T admit persons who represent themselves as 
agents, canvassers, etc., into your business place 
unless they display their credentials. If doubtful, 
telephone their employer before admitting them. 
If suspicious phone headquarters. 

DON'T neglect to test and examine your burglar and 
fire alarms, frequently. 

DON'T trust persons with whom you come in contact 
because they are prosperous looking, smooth 
talkers, or with polished manners. Remember 
up-to-date thieves do not look like thugs. 

DON'T fail to observe persons loitering about your place 
of business. Make a mental note of their ap- 
pearance, notify police. 

DON'T neglect to inform the desk officer at pohce head- 
quarters of the exact location and the need when 
you telephone for police assistance. 

DON'T fail to keep a record and thorough description 
and all marks of identification of all your 
valuable property. 

DON'T fail to record the serial numbers of your bonds 
and stocks, in any corporation. If lost or stolen,

NEW CAPTAINS AND LIEUTENANTS LIST 



The results of the promotional examinations for captains 
and lieutenants, held last December 7, were made public 
the first of last month. 

The eligible list numbering 15 captains and 30 lieuten- 
ants includes some of the best members of the San Fran- 
cisco Police Department. They have all arrived at higher 
stations in law enforcement through the experience they 
have had, intensive studying and understanding of police 
work. 

It is more than a probability that every one of the 15 
Lieutenants who made the Captains list will have achieved 
the top rank of the Police Department before the present 
list expires four years hence. Retirement of many of the 
present Captains under the new pension system and the 
prospects of added police districts offer an opportunity 
that has not been possible for nearly 40 years. 

Director James English headed the Captains list of 
eligibles. With an enviable record as a police officer he 
has passed through the ranks high on every examination. 
A college man, University of California, an outstanding 
graduate of the FBI National Police Academy he demon- 
strated his ability as an officer of the law in many ways, 
but notably on the Pawnshop Detail of the Inspectors 
Bureau where he made numerous arrests of big time oper- 



Director English Heads Captain's List 

Director of Personnel James English, who topped the 
list of Lieutenants in the recent promotional examination 
was born in San Jose, Nov. 23, 1905, and after getting 
an education took up the trade of an electrician, until 




Director James English 

on October 8, 1928, when, just past 23 years of age, he 
joined the San Francisco Police Department. 

Few men have equalled the record Director English 
has hung up for mastering all the details of law enforce- 
ment. None excel his record for courage under fire, and 



ators of stolen goods, and was at one time forced to shoot 
It out with a suspect, whom he had to kill to save his 
own life. During the war he was borrowed to take an 
active part in the Civilian Defense of this city. He did 
a swell job. 

Shortly after finishing his course in the National Police 
Academy in Washington, D. C, he was promoted to a 
captaincy, and was almost immediately appointed to the 
post of Director of Personnel. 

His handling of the San Francisco Police Academy, 
where every recruit gets his basic training, he made that 
unit of the Department unsurpassed by any police train- 
ing school in the nation, including the FBI School. 

He is a man of pleasing appearances, who does not get 
mad out loud, a proven executive as well as a man of 
courage. 

Jim English is a solid man who gives no worries to his 
superior officers. He is studious as evidenced by the high 
mark he made in last December's examination. 

Lieutenant Jack A. Eker, who placed second on the 
Captain's list is, and has been assigned for some time, at 
the busy Northern Station. 

Lieutenant James L. Quigley was third man on the list. 
He is now assigned to Richmond station. 
(Continued on Page 62 J 



his progress through the ranks of the Police Department 
is something that but a very small number have been able 
to match as far as the short time taken to reach the top 
most rank. In all examinations for a step upward he 
has always placed high on the eligible list released by the 
Civil Service Board. 

A studious young man he is possessed of the courage 
and intestinal fortitude all good police officers must have. 
One day, August 1, 1936, when he was on the Pawnshop 
Detail, he ambled into a pawnshop down on Third Street. 
There was a holdup going on. An ex-con was doing the 
holding up, and had the proprietor of the shop well 
covered. Inspector James English — it was Inspector then 
— took a look, he saw what was going on, and he took 
action. He drew his gun and told the ex-con to drop his 
gun. Instead, the outlaw whirled on Inspector English, 
pulling the trigger of his gun and dashed for the door. 
The Inspector escaped the fusilade of shots and coolly let 
loose a few slugs from his gun, which took effect. The 
stickup man was shot dead. It turned out that he was 
Stanley Abernathy, a real bad man and a killer. 

Three years before he met up with a couple of bandits 
who had been giving the police a lot of trouble. Here he 
was able to snap the the cuffs on the two desperados with- 
out any gun firmg. 

For these two incidents he was voted meritorious service 
by the Board of Police Commissioners. 

Through the ranks he was promoted to Corporal No- 
vember 30, 1931, Sergeant May 1, 1937, Lieutenant May

Lieut. Eker Second on List 

Lieutenant Jack Eker, who placed second on the Cap- 
tain's list, is a native of Albany, Minnesota. With his 
parents and nine sisters and one brother, the family came 
to Sacramento when Jack Eker was quite young. When 
he got to the age of earning his living he became an 



Lieut. James L. Quigley Places Third 

Lieutenant James L. Quigley, who was third on the 
new Captain's list is considered the best authority on 
promotional examinations, the mechanics, the subjects to 
be studied, the knowledge of all laws and other features 
that ambitious young men and women must face in their 




Lieutenant Jack Eker 

auto mechanic, and following this trade he came often 
to San Francisco. He liked the town, and after establish- 
ing a residence here he took the examination for police 
officers and placed high on the eligible list being appointed 
a member of the San Francisco Police Department, No- 
vember ^, 1928. 

He has served in seven district stations, did a hitch of 
two years on the Special Service Detail in headquarters 
company, under Sergeant Edward Hanley. He was on 
the desk in the business office of the Bureau of Inspectors 
for two years. 

Lieutenant Eker built up a fine reputation for master- 
ing the details of law enforcement, handling men who 
worked under him and getting along with men whom 
he worked with. He is a student, without anv college 
education, yet he was able to place high on the list of 
promotional examinations, making the rank of Corporal 
July 17, 193?, made a sergeant by charter amendment 
May 1, 1937, and Lieutenant July 1, 1942. 

He is a licensed airplane pilot, taking flying before 
he became a policeman, and owned his own plane until 
the start of the last world war, when all such craft were 
grounded. It was while following this avocation that 
he became a hero. 

He was down to the Municipal Airport, Mills Field, 
when word was flashed that a man in a duck blind was in 
danger of drowning. Seemed like a heavy sea went over 
the blind several hundred yards from shore and threw 
the duck hunter, John Simetti, out. Eker got aboard a 
Coast Guard small boat which foundered, but he swam

efforts to progress higher in their respective callings. So 
good is he in preparing aspirants for civil service positions 
and those who want to take advantage of the opportuni- 
ties offered for progressing to higher ratings, that he has 
for years conducted a coaching school, and many mem- 
bers of the San Francisco Police Department admit their 
success in passing examinations for the various ranks of 
the Department, to the instructions and help they have 
received from Lieutenant Quigley. 

A native of San Francisco, the Lieutenant has taken 
an active part not only in police affairs but in political 
endeavors. He resigned from the Department in 1928 
to make a try for assemblyman from the 24th district in 
this city, and was elected by a big majority. So successful 
was his work in the state legislature that he was returned 
for a second term in 1930. After setting through the 1931 
session of the state legislative body, and accomplishing 
several things he believed would be of advantage to his 
native city and state, he took a second examination for 
entrance as a police officer and place first on the list. He 
reentered the Department on November 30, 1931. He 
first became a policeman on May 16, 1921. 

On October 10, 1927 he was made a sergeant and Janu- 
ary 9, 1942, was appointed a Lieutenant. 

In 1941 he was selected to take the traffic course in 
the Northwestern University and when he returned to 
this city after graduating he was detailed to the Traffic 
Bureau and served there for three years. Then he was 
brought into the business office of the Bureau of Inspectors 
where he served until November 11, 1944, when he was

Some Are True and Some Are False— Rate Yourself 



In last month's issue of this journal the following num- 
bered questions were "true": 

1 2 3 6 7 9 10 12 14 18 
22 23 25 26 27 30 32 35 37 38 



41. It is a widely held belief that special aptitudes are 
required for the successful conduct of police inves- 
tigation. 

42. Sir Robert Peel introduced the act which created the 
London Metropolitan System. 

43. The two best photographs to be taken of a prisoner 
are the anterior and profile views. 

44. Latent fingerprints may be developed on blotting 
paper. 

45. Bertillon is the inventor of a fingerprint identifica- 
tion system. 

46. In criminal investigations there is no particular ad- 
vantage in determining the motive of the crime. 

47. Different persons suspected of diiferent crimes should 
always be questioned together. 

48. Criminologists agree that one can determine the race 
of a person by his fingerprints. 

49. When a bullet hole is discovered in a window pane 
it is impossible to determine from which side of the 
window pane the shot was fired. 

50. An important rule in investigation is never to disturb 
the position of any object at a scene of a crime until 
a careful description and photograph have been made. 

51. Firearms identification depends on the fact that the 
machining processes involved in gun manufacture 
leave constantly changing patterns in the barrels and 
on the breech of the parts. 

52. The association method is a method of determining 
if two persons were connected with the same crime. 

53 The best means of identifying a watch is by its make. 

54 It is possible to determine the speed of a motor ve- 
hicle by its skid marks. 

5 5 If a cast is to be made of a footprint in dust it is 
best immediately to pour plaster of paris on the im- 
print to preserve it. 

56 Pistol and revolver barrels are not rifled. 

57 In examining questioned documents, the age of ink 
can usually be ascertained. 

58 Two bullets may be studied simultaneously by means 
of a comparison microscope. 

59 From the viewpoint of identification the revolver 
should be classified first by percussion and second 
by calibre. 

60 In the examination of a questioned document a 
cryptograph analysis is essential. 

61 It is easy to determine if the blood stain is human 
by the benzidine test. 

62 Determining the make of unknown firearms is ac- 
complished by examining the grooves of the bullet, 
their number and width as well as the direction and 
lead of the sniral. 



63 If it is to be successful, a technique used in detecting 
deception must not rely on the operation of the 
subject. 

64 Hair found at the scene of crime should be carefully 
cut into several pieces so that if one piece is lost 
there will always be a sample for a later identification. 

65 Venous blood cannot be distinguished from arterial 
blood. 

66 Due to the difference of American cars, the distance 
between the two rear or front tire marks gives very 
important information. 

67 The first rule of dactyloscopy is that there are no 
two identical fingerprints. 

68 The classification and treatment of offenders should 
be conducted from the point of view of the welfare 
society. 

69 The law requires that copies of each set of finger- 
prints taken of prisoners should be forwarded to the 
F. B. I. and the State Bureau. 

70 Criminality usually arises from environmental factors 
that can be controlled. 

71 The fingerprinting of infants or juveniles do not 
materially change on reaching the age of maturity. 

72 It is possible, in certain cases, to determine the ap- 
proximate height of an individual from a series of 
footprints. 

73 The crime laboratory not only increases the effective- 
ness of criminal investigations but in many cases 
reduces the cost of such investigation. 

74 Education is the best means of reducing vice con- 
ditions. 

75 Probation is a constructive method of rehabilitating 
criminals. 

76 The following are fundamental purposes of a muni- 
cipal police organization: Preservation of the peace, 
prevention of crime, detection of crime, protection 
of life and property, and the apprehension and prose- 
cution of violators of the law. 

77 Lombroso is known for developing a system of identi- 
fication by means of measurements. 

78 Enforcement, engineering, and elevated highways are 
recognized as the three "E's" essential in traffic 
control. 

79 A uniform administration of traffic laws is essential 
in traffic control, to success in solving traffic prob- 
lems and reducing traffic hazards. 

80 The main complication of the traffic problem in San 
Francisco is due to its topography. 

81 An important part of an accident prevention pro- 
gram is the monthly computation of the traffic en- 
forcement index of the community. 

82 A law enforcement agency is adequately handling 
the traffic if it is securing about twice the number 
of convictions for moving violations as there are 
personal injury accidents. 



March, J947 



POLICE AND PEACE OFFICERS' JOURNAL 



Page 15 



83 The tendency if traffic accident prevention programs 
today is to concentrate upon types of violations 
which are known to cause accidents. 

84 The traffic enforcement index enables the police to 
determine the adequacy of their enforcement work. 

85 Under the system of uniform crimes reporting in 
use in this country, if one person murders two per- 
sons two offenses are listed; and if three persons 
murder one person one offense is listed. 

86 The effectiveness of traffic signs, signals and street 
markings is dependent upon drive obedience, hence 
lax law enforcement will result in a decrease in ac- 
cidents. 

87 The Bulletin, Uniform Crime Reports, is issued by 
the International Association of Chiefs of Police. 

88 Records of arrests are generally accepted to be ac- 
curate measures of the extent of crime. 

89 Most of the crime reported to the police and included 
in Part I, of the Uniform Crime Reports, are crimes 
against property. 

90 A record of embezzlements reported to the police is 
generally accepted to be an accurate measure of the 
number of crimes of embezzlement committed. 

91 The Uniform Crime Reports reveal that the age 
group 19-22 shows a higher number of arrests than 
the age group 22-25. 

92 According to statistics in Uniform Crime Reports the 
Negro shows the highest homicide rate among the 
various races in this country. 

93 A record of auto thefts reported to the police closely 
approximate the number of autos stolen. 

94 At least 50 per cent of all crimes committed are 
charged to persons less than 25 years of age. 

95 There are usually more crimes per unit of popula- 
tion in the average city with over 100,000 population 
than in the average smaller community. 

96 The majority of auto theft offenses are charged to 
youths under 2 1 years of age. 

97 The number of attempted crimes reported to the police 
is not reflected in the Uniform Crime Reports. 

99 Records of the number of persons arrested and 
records of the number of crimes disposed of by 
arrest are generally accurate indices of the efficiency 
of the police department as an enforcement agency. 

100 Following are the offenses classified under Part I — 
"Offenses known to the police," in the Uniform 
Crime Reports: Rape, criminal homicide, embezzle- 
ment, auto theft, aggravated assault, burglary and 
robbery. 

101 The defendant charged with felony, must, in all cases, 
be taken before the magistrate who issued the warrant.

S.F. Police Officers^Associations New Officers! 



On February 18 the San Francisco Police Officers' As' 
sociation held its fifth annual election of officers. With 
a membership of some 900 members, around 600 cast 
their ballots for their choice of men to guide the organiza- 
tion through the year 1947. 




Sergeant Joseph Perry 

Those elected and who were installed in Dore Hall 
March 18 were: 

President — Sergeant Joseph E. Perry, Traffic Bureau. 
First Vice-President — Officer Evan James, Traffic. 
Second Vice-President — Officer Edward Nevin, North' 
ern Station. 

Treasurer — Officer Paul Zgreggan, Mission Station. 
Secretary — Officer James Haggerty, Northern Station. 
Sergeant-at-Arms — Officer Ted Dolan, Ingleside Station. 

President Perry has been a member of the San Fran- 
cisco Police Department for 26 years, over 16 of those 
years having been served with the Traffic Bureau. As a 
motorcycle he was one of a squad that kept accidents 
down by strict enforcing of the traffic laws, and when 
he brought a violator into court he presented his case 
without any bitterness or personal ill feeling against the 
defendant. For his conduct in municipal courts handling 
traffic he was highly regarded by the judges for his fair 
and able presentment of cases involving speeding, reckless 
driving and driving while dn.mk. 

He is a native of San Francisco, and he went into the 
police department with a wide knowledge of his native city. 

He was appointed January 1, 1921, and after serving 
at Ingleside for some 22 months was brought into Com- 
pany K where he remained until February 10, 1937, when 
he was assigned to the radio department of the Bureau 
of Police Communications. Here he served with the same 
high efficiency as he had served on other assignments since 
he took up law enforcement. On October 16, 193'>, he 



was returned to the Traffic Bureau where he is a patrol ] 
sergeant in the downtown area. 

During the '20's he was a member of the troupe of] 
officers organized by the late Sergeant Patrick McGeel 
who build up good will among the people of this city by 
presenting before any kind of worth while organizations 
a show. This show demonstrated the training officers 
received in handling law breakers, disarming desperate 
criminals and exhibition of judo and other wrestling tricks, 
with a high class comedy parts interspersed. Joe Perry 
was a fine athlete and made many friends for the De- 
partment by his demonstrations of the various means of J 
defense police officers must master. 

He was made a corporal in April, 1934, and a sergeant 
on May 3 1 . 

He has been deeply interested in veterans affairs and 
has been active in the Police Post, American Legion, 
having been one of its presiding officers. 

Joe Perry is our idea of what a good policeman should 
be and he will make the S. F. Police Officers' Association 
even better than it has been since organized five years ago.

Achievement of S. F. Police Officers Assn. 



Since its formation in May, 1942, the following re- 
apitulation of the achievements of the San Francisco 
'olice Officers" Association indicates that by union there 
s strength. 

During its seven months of 1942 the Association got 
eaves of absence and permission to leave the city; got 
he dvil service board to hold a sergeants examination; 
onducted a survey of 18 major cities throughout the 
lation to gather data for increasing salaries, which was 
'oted at the November election, the first of three raises 
)ut over by the united action of the Police Association 
nd the Fire Department; got up and issued bulletins on 
he rising cost of living which furnished material for the 
ampaign; repaired two radios in Ward 1, San Francisco 
■lospital used by members of the Police Department; pre- 
ented service flag to the Police Commission representing

Truck Loads of Loot . . . Four Arrested 



1 



By Opie L. Warner 



As we grow older we more and more realize the abso- 
lute truth of the expression: There is nothing new under 
the sun. A few years ago volumes were written about 
gangsterism and racketeering. What was the United 
States coming to? Had the days of law and order, and 




Inspector Jerome F. Smith 

a respect for the laws of this great nation, come to be 
just a memory, were questions appearing in the editorials 
of all the big dailies throughout the land. 

The so-called great minds of this nation were of one 
accord — the bottom had fallen out of our law enforce- 
ment machinery, the police departments and the sheriff's 
departments of this great land. The government, through 
the Army or the Secret Service or the unlimited powers 
at its disposal should take over — and why' Oh, yes; 
because there was a terrible tempest in a teapot. Some 
half a hundred moronic citizens in the effete east of this 
great nation and in the wealthy middle west in a high, 
wide and handsome — and murderous, too — manner were 
defying the Prohibition Law. Today those moronic heroes 
are gone with the wind as it were. Today the Dillingers, 
the Morans, the Baby Face Nelsons — and even the great 
and all-powerful head of the Capone army are just 
memories. 

Cruel gangs of law breakers were known in every age. 
So were pirates — but the ordinary citizen was still doing 
business at the old stand in the China of the time of 
Confucius, or Greece or Rome before each of these great 
nations became just a memory, long years after there was 
not even a memory of the piratical scourges of the sea 
or the fiends whose sole delight seemed to be to rob and 
torture good citizens, and then burn their homes. 

The history of every nation shows there were always 
despoilers. Our own United States has quite an inter- 
esting list of bad men who killed in order to secure loot. 



Story writers have occasionally tried vainly to confer 
glamor on these exponents of brute force in their thieve: 
But, in this country, as down through history, the wagi 
of sin is always the same — death. 

California has had its Black Bart, its Evans and Sontag^ 
its Murietta and others of the same high (■") calibre as 
law defiers. Today they are hardly a memory. Put, today, 
we have class A pirates — land pirates, and how! 

Crime technique, like every means of securing money — 
either legitimately or otherwise — has completely changed. 
In early California history horse stealing was a top crime 
and called for the life of the thief. In California of our 
time the hoise thief — and even the cattle thief — are not 
known or thought of save in Hollywood where history 
and every other thing is topsy turvey. 

San Francisco always did provide headlines to the vast 
multitude that abides east of the Rockies. Since January 
iirst it was tops again in the news when the word went 
forth that this city was the home office of one of the 
greatest piratical gangs in the history of the United ^ 
States — the quarter of a million gang of land pirates 
who scuttled no ships, murdered no crew and burned 
no coast town. 

Our young, hale and hearty land pirates probably never 
heard of Captain Kidd, the pirates of the Spanish Main, 
Queen Elizabeth, Walter Raleigh or people of that period 
when peaceably going to sea was a perilous adventure 
indeed. 

Historical bandits and pirates would look like pikers if 
compared with our four local boys.

took and which 



Our local boys used no guns, sailed no ships, threatened 
nobody with physical harm and divided thousands of 
dollars regularly. 

Kidnaping is a top crime in California. But a human 
being comes into the definition of that crime. 

Now, our four "land pirates" did kidnaping jobs to the 
extent of a sizeable fraction of a million dollars, but not 
a man, woman or child was affected — they kidnaped caf 
goes, and such cargoes!

Officer McNamara Breaks Up Robber Mob 



Guys who make crime a business devote a lot of time 
to planning a job, a little less on a getaway and some on 
disposing of their loot. But there is one sure thing that 
they cannot work out to their advantage, and that is the 
dunces that they will be spotted by a wide awake Police 
OflBcer who doesn't like the way they might be acting. 

Take the case of a bunch of five stick up boys who 
Mve been having a field day for 5 or 6 days getting into 
ipartment houses and holding up people engaged in some 
egal card playing. 

They had held up a place at 441 Ellis street, it was 
'heir first job, others followed but they met their Berlin 
fate a week after the first successful holdup. 

They settled for their last job — they didn't know it at 
the time — on an apartment at 1210 Jones Street. They 
jntcred the apartment of Donald McNeill at 1208 Jones 
Street, tied' him up, robbed the place, they made him 
jpen a door to 1210 Jones street, where they held up four 
women and a man, taking some two hours to ransack the 
place; packing furs, jewelry and other valuables in suit 
ases and taking them down stairs to be loaded into a 
ar that was parked nearby to carry them to a rendezvous. 

Well the job was working well up to this time. But 
it happens that Officer John McNamara, on the force 
since 1942, with three years in the merchant marine during 
'he war, and a former elevator operator at the Hall of 
justice, was off duty and was returning in his car with 
his wife from a show down town to his home. 

He noted a car parked near the Jones Street apart- 
ment. Stopping his car, because he saw a guy furtively 
ooking around he felt it would be a good idea, even 
iiough he was off duty, to give the guy a little questioning. 

The man in the car proved to be Albert Hocking, 21, 
uid before he could unlimber his artillery McNamara had 
lim covered and giving him a frisk. He found Hocking 
liad a gun. At this point two men emerged from the 
ipartment house loaded with suit cases. It didn't take 
iiiaa long to figure what was happening, and dropping 
their suit cases they pulled their "rods" and told Officer 
McNamara to elevate his lunch grabbers. 

Instead of complying with their brusk request he levelled 
on the pair, and they darted into a side entrance, got 
iway, leaving their suit cases, and dropping their guns. 

Officer McNamara handcuffed Hocking and called for 
"help. A posse headed by Sergeant Harold Anderson, a 
Lieutenant-elect, galloped to the scene and with Bureau 
>f Inspectors operatives questioned Hocking, who seeing 
he was in a jam, did a little talking. In an hour two 
other members of the mob were in the city prison, they 
being Richard Murphy, 19, and Gene Cooper, 21. The 
fourth member of the gang, said to be the ring leader, 
escaped, but Murphy's brother was brought in for ques- 
tioning. The first three were booked for suspicion of 
robbery and violating the gun law. Five guns were recov- 
ered, two dropped by the escaping bandits, one that 
Hocking had and two found in the homes of the two 



arrested later. 

Some $2500 worth of furs and jewelry taken in the 
apartment house robbery were also recovered. 

Officer McNamara is typical of the members of the 
local Department, and he has been given high praise 
for his demonstration of enforcing the laws of this land. 
He deserves all the praise that can be heaped upon him.

THE CANDID FRIEND SAYS 

By Opie L. Warner 

The intervals between promotional examinations seem 
to pass like a shadow — hence the never-say-die contenders 
have good reason to grit their teeth and continue working 
on the books to do better the next time when they will 
have more seniority credits coming to them. 

In this issue we are publishing the names of the forty' 
five successful candidates who secured places on the 
eligible lists in the recent examination for the positions 
of captain and lieutenant, respectively. 

We offer our congratulations to this fine group of 
tireless students, who, through hard work and continuous 
preparation, were able to successfully handle the questions 
propounded to them some weeks ago by the Civil Service 
Commission. 

In the recent promotional examination in the depart- 
ment for lieutenants' and captains' jobs thirty-five per 
cent of the aspirants got on the eligible lists. 

The examination test was quite comprehensive — im- 
mense, in fact, in comparison with such examinations 
of the old days which called for only a knowledge of 
the "Black Book," the name by which the book of the 
Rules and Regulations of the San Francisco Police 
Department has been familiarly known to department 
members. 



We are not at all pleased when we miss the names of ? 
so many of our good friends from the eligible Hsts for 
commissioned ofBcers in the Department — knowing how 
well and faithfully they prepared for the recent test. 

We had assumed, and had so stated, in previous issues 
of this journal, that only about twenty-five per cent of 
the contestants would succeed; but the lists — fifteen on 
the captains' and thirty on the lieutenants' list — we are 
glad to announce, proved we were just a little pessimistic. 

Once again let us remind you: Promotion in the San 
Francisco Police Department is strictly up to the indi- 
vidual and his very best efforts — chance and political 
influence are absolutely out of the picture, promotion is 
simply a case of the effort to win, plus study and 
more study. 



CONTENTMENT 

By Inspector Harry Cook 
San Francisco Police Department 

Ambition's a wonderful thing. 

And something we all should desire, 

For without it we never get very far, 
But with it go higher and higher. 

It frequently urges us on. 

To double our efforts to win. 
And instills in our systems a sort of force, 

That seems to get under our skin. 

Now if this desire's held in check. 

Not permitted to ramble too far. 
It's good, but many a man gets in bad, 

By reaching far up to a star. 

He is never content where he is. 

But aspires to some different sphere, 

And often he shortens his life many years. 
To gain sudden riches while here. 

And if he gets them, what then? 

If acquired at the cost of his health. 
And the loss of his temper and of his friends, 

What is the good of this wealth? 

And life is a wonderful thing. 

To that I am sure you'll agree. 
The right to enjoy in contentment and peace. 

Is truly a pleasure to me. 

So the fellow who don't aim too high. 
And tries hard to be on the square. 

Is the one who gets the most out of life, 
And keeps clear of pitfall and snare.

the number can be furnished the police to aid in 
their recovery. 

DON'T after the commission of a crime, permit the 
handling of any article which might contain 
fingerprints, as they are of great value and as- 
sistance to the police. 

DON'T display a quantity of money when paying bills 
to collectors. 

DON'T stop at any place, en route to your place of 
business after drawing money from the bank, or 
on your way to make deposits. 

DON'T fail to have your safe, containing valuables, se- 
curely locked during business hours to prevent 
a possible holdup. 

DON'T open your safe for any purpose, while there are 
strangers present. Make a practice of closing 
the doors of your business place at the closing 
of the day before putting valuables into the safe. 

DON'T carry large sums of money on your person. A 
check book is safer and more convenient. 

DON'T omit to have a responsible employee inspect your 
premises before closing for the night, to see that 
no one is hiding within. 

DON'T forget to set the burglar alarm before leaving for 
the night; see that your safe is locked and don't 
leave the combination numbers of your safe in 
your desk drawer or elsewhere on the premises. 

DON'T be too sure that professional thieves steal every- 
thing you miss. Dishonest employees are often 
the culprits. 

DON'T employ anyone until you have investigated their 
character and verified their references. 

DON'T pay for c.o.d. packages until you have examined 
the contents and are satisfied that the goods 
have been ordered by you. 

DON'T fail to notify the police immediately upon dis- 
covering the loss of property, whether stolen 
or lost.

BARSTOW CONSTABLE STARTS FOURTH TERM 



Barstow, San Bernardino County, is in the center of 
the Mojave Desert, and is the largest city in that vast 
area covering some 50,000 square miles. 

Barstow is an important division point for the Santa 
Fe Railway and the Union Pacific, and over the lines of 




Constable NtwTuN A. HhNDtKsuN 

these two great railroads flow trainloads of passengers 
and freight, both west and east bound. During the war 
the people thought the rail traffic was stupenduous, but 
it has not shown any abatement since hostih'ties have 
ceased. 

The population of Barstow is estimated at 15,000, and 
included in this figure is some 1500 Navajo Indians who 
work on the railroads, farms, and utilizing their artistic 
talents to the making by hand of curios, rugs, baskets, 
pottery, blankets and jewelry which travellers from all 
over the world have and are buying along the Santa 
Fe route. 

While railroading plays an important part in the eco' 
nomic life of Barstow it is the center of great cattle rais' 
ing and farming and from the early '70's it has been the 
central point for mining. Gold, silver, borax, some copper, 
other valuable minerals have been discovered and mined 
in the Barstow area. 

People traveling either east or west on Highways 66, 
91, and 466 have to pass through Barstow, and the year 
round the number of travellers by automobile and stage 
is an impressive one. During the war years the migration 
West was almost unbelievable and the town wa.s taxed to 
the utmost to take care of those who were coming to this 
coast to engage in war work, or to be near their sons and 



daughters who were in the armed services and readying 
for the far Pacific War area. 

Today many are coming west, and there is a heavy 
travel of those, who are returning to their native states. 

These, with the activities of the various farming, cattle 
raising, mining and railroading gives much that law en- 
forcement officers have to deal with. 

In Barstow they have a Constable, who has served well '|1 
for 12 years as the township officer of that busy desert 
metropohs. He is Newton A. Henderson, known to his 
friends as Newt. | 

Constable Henderson with his family came to California 
in 1911, and landed in Barstow where he went into the 
cattle business. Selecting Camp Cady, near Barstow, as 
the site for his new undertaking he operated a cattle S 
ranch for 20 years, and successfully. " 

In 1934 he was persuaded by friends, business men of 
Barstom township to enter law enforcement, and he was 
put forth as a candidate for the office of Constable. He 
was elected. He has been reelected at every four-year 
election since, in the 1946 campaign he had no opposition 
and won at the Primary. He has justified the confidence 
of those friends who got him into the profession of en- 
forcing the law. 

For 12 years he has given assistance to the Sheriff of

Colusa has a Mayor who devotes a lot of his time to 
the interests of the city's Police Department, as well as

improvement in municipal and county government of 
the upper Sacramento Valley regions. 

As head of the city government, Mayor A. B. Davison 
has taken a prominent part in bringing into closer co- 

CONSTABLE BUTLER, OF COLUSA 

In the outlying counties of California the office of town- 
ship Constable is one of great importance. Besides being 
charged with service of civil papers, a good Constable is 
expected to take an active part in suppressing crime and 
apprehending criminals, in their respective jurisdictions. 

Colusa township has such a man in Constable R. E. 
Butler, who a little over three years ago was appointed 
to fill a vacancy in the office, and at the election last June 
he was swept into office for another four year term with- 
out any opposition. 

Constable Butler has been a resident of Colusa for 
more than 30 years. He has a great background as a 
successful business man and as a public official, having 
served for 16 years with distinction on the Colusa city 
council during which for two and a half years he was 
Mayor of the city. 

He conducts a canvas and leather business, being an old 
time harness and saddle maker of 43 years' experience, 
and through the Sacramento Valley many of his saddles 
are to be seen today, attesting the fine quality of the 
product he put out. 

He has developed into a keen law enforcement officer 
and gives the closest of cooperation to his fellow officers 
of neighboring towns and cities. 



'avison 

operation city and county police officers. He is responsible 
for having a full-time radio operator desk sergeant, which 
resulted in the appointment of Sergeant J. G. Butler on 
the night shift of Colusa radio broadcasting system. This 
system has its expenses for operation shared by the city 
and county law enforcement departments. 

Mayor Davison was elected treasurer of the League of 
California Cities at its convention in San Diego last 
September. He is also a director of the Sacramento Valley 
Division of the State League. 

He is a man of exceptional energy and with the intelli- 
gence to ferret out any useless matters having to do with 
city affairs and to readily adopt those that will benefit the 
public for which he stands. 

The Colusa Police Department thinks it has a 
mighty good friend in their present Mayor.

SHERIFF COX OF SACRAMENTO 



Page 25 



Sheriff Donald Cox, of Sacramento, elected at the Saui 
Diego convention of the State Peace Officers Association 
to the office of sergeant-at-arms, which is the first stepping 
stone to the presidency, is no come lately peace officer. 




Sheriff Donald Cox 

He has been connected with the Sheriff's office of Sac' 
ramento since 1922, when, after getting out of the service 
of his Uncle Sam which he enlisted at the start of World 
War I in the U. S. Navy, he took to law enforcement 
■work. 

The years prove that he made no mistake in this under- 
taking and that those who gave him the opportunity 
made no mistake in the part that started him on a 24-year 
career that has found him Sheriff since 1932. 

When Sheriff Ellis Jones left the office with a vacancy 
the Supervisors made no hesitancy in selecting a successor 
by appointing Undersheriff Donald Cox. That was in 
1932. He was overwhelmingly elected to the office in 
1934, and reelected in 1938 and 1942 and at the election 
last November he marked up another successful victory 
at the polls. 

Sheriff Cox has given Sacramento county a high order 
of law enforcement. During the time he has been a 
member of that important peace officers agency — at Dep- 
uty Sheriff and as Sheriff — Sacramento county has had 
no organized rackets, and where major crimes have oc- 
curred in the unincorporated areas of the county, the 
records will show a very high percentage of solutions, 
with the arrest, convictions and imprisonment of those 
responsible for those crimes. 

There are 47 people on Sheriff Cox's staff, including 
two matrons. 



The office of Under Sheriff is capably filled by Harry 
Knoll. 

Charles Wearn, the chief criminal deputy has done a 
fine job with this important feature of the Sheriff's office. 

Captain Charles Ogle has charge of the night crew of 
the office and he has, as does the day men, a complete 
coverage of the county by deputies in patrol cars equipped 
with two-way radio. 

The Sacramento Sheriff's Identification Bureau, im- 
portant as in all law enforcement agencies, takes second 
to none in this state. It is in charge of Deputy J. E. 
McVeigh. 

Matrons Anne Cancssa and Clara Whitney take care 
of the women who are brought to the county jail. They 
are experienced in this work and do their share to main- 
tain the high type of efficiency produced by Sheriff Cox 
and his other associates.

POLICE AND PEACE OFFICERS' JOURNAL 

Colusa^s Police Chief 

By WiLLMER G. Brill 
Editor, Colusa Sun-Herald 



March, 1947 



Glen Wise, Colusa's Police Chief, looks back on six 
years as the head of a city department that has kept in 
step with modern methods of crime detection, law enforce- 
ment and cooperation with county, state and federal 
officers. 

The city council appointed Wise as Chief of Police in 




Chief Glen Wise 

1941. He succeeded the veteran J. R. Totman, now 
deceased, and never for a minute has the council re- 
gretted its choice. 

Wise is a young man as Police Chiefs go. He goes 
about his business quietly, patiently and without fanfare. 
And he gets results. He holds the respect and confidence 
of Colusa's business men. And he holds the respect of 
the chronic but minor law violators and the "jungle" 
habitues which many small cities like Colusa have. To 
be sure they get out of line now and then and they know 
they have to pay for it. But they know, too, that they'll 
get a "square deal" from Police Chief Wise. He can be 
tough when he has to, but withal understanding and 
willing to give a man a break when he deserves it. 

For years past crime has never been rampant in Colusa. 
It's always been well controlled by the Colusa police 
department. "Oh, we have a robbery now and then," 
says Chief Wise, "but what city doesn't? I think we 
get along pretty well in Colusa. The people are most 
cooperative with the Department and we do our best 
to keep things on an even keel. Our worst months are 
from May to December, particularly during the prune 
harvest season which starts in August. Then we have 
the usual run of drunks, drunken drivers, fights, small 
robberies. They really keep us busy then." 

Chief Wise has two excellent assistants in Patrolmen 
Thomas Cook and Clarence Bruffett. They take turns 
on the city's night patrol by car. Ofiicers Cook and 



Bruffett have been members of the city police force for 
the last four years, although the former is the more ex- 
perienced, having served as a peace officer here many 
years ago before moving away and then returning to 
Colusa to make his home. 

Then there's Jesse Butler, desk sergeant in the sheriff's 
office, who serves both the city and county of Colusa. 
Butler's salary is paid jointly by the city and county. He 
serves at night, being charged with the responsibility of 
clearing all police and county officer calls through the 
sheriff's office which is radio equipped, both for receiving 
and sending of urgent and routine messages. 

Chief Wise is proud of the city's two cars that are 
equipped with two-way radios. "I think it's one of the 
best things that the Department has ever done," said 
Wise. "We've had a man on the spot in a matter of 
seconds, many times, when emergency police calls have 
come in. And I think the joint city-county arrangement 
for protection at night works out well. It gives the people 
of our community a better sense of security, knowing that 
they can get an officer quickly by simply calling the 
sheriff's office. The call goes out from there and is picked 
up by the patrol car, day or night. Before the days of 
the fast radio communication we had trouble and, I dare 
sav. got lots of criticism."

Like other cities of its size (3,000) Colusa has its ^ 
juvenile delinquency problems. But they're not really too 
bad, says Chief Wise. "The youngsters here are not any 
worse than they are any other place. Occasionally we 
have to bring them in for heart-to-heart talks and to set 
them straight. We have a 10 p. m. curfew and it's fairly 
well observed by the boys and girls of Colusa. In ag- 
gravated cases we go directly to the parents. We've 
found this method of youth correction removes a lot of 
headaches." 

Currently, as is the case with other California cities, 
the Colusa Police Department is cracking down hard on 
drunk drivers. In the last four months there have been 
no less than 15 arrests. And both Police Judge B. L. 
McCue and Justice of the Peace O. K. Chenoweth of 
Colusa Township have not been lenient in assessing of 
fines and even jail sentences. 

Police Chief Wise has other duties, too. He is the 
city's ex-officio license tax collector. And quite often 
he sits in with the city council at monthly meetings to 
discuss law enforcement and other problems of his De- 
partment. His immediate superior is Mayor A. B. Davison, 
who is designated as police commissioner. The mayor

and the Chief work in complete harmony at all times, 
thus assuring Colusa of an efficient administration. 

Colusa's Police Chief is well schooled in the use of 
firearms and crime detection methods. He has attended 
numerous schools conducted by the Federal Bureau of 
Investigation, as have the men of his Department. He 
attends monthly meetings of the Northern California

He knows Colusa like a book and generally can be 
depended upon to handle a difficult situation with com- 
parative ease. 

Sizing up the Colusa Police Department by and large, 
it's small but efficient. It probably could and probably will 
be enlarged one of these days. But Chief Wise and his 
assistants handle things in fairly good shape now. There's 
been no major unsolved crime — in fact no major crime at 
all — here in years and years. 

Pohce Chief Wise is proud and rightly so of his record 
of service to the people of Colusa. 

In this interview he told us "don't use any fancy words 
— just say things are all right in Colusa. I don't like 
some of those high faluting phrases you writers use 
sometimes." 

And so that's the story of Colusa's Police Chief, a 
man who knows his business — a mighty valuable man for 
any community to have.

THE SAN FRANCISCO POLICE RESERVE 



From the report of the San Francisco Police Reserve 
for the year 1946 it readily appears that the Reserve 
members were a very much worth while asset to the un- 
dermanned San Francisco Police Department during the 
past year. 

The Reserve is manned by five hundred odd volunteer 
members, most of whom have served since Pearl Harbor 
Day — and their assignments include nearly every phase 
of police routine. 

Thus, we find our Reserve ofiicers making nightly 
patrols in all the city police districts and policing "special 
events" such as football games, parades, gatherings, 
et cetera. 

We also find them handling traffic at the Ocean Beach, 
Park-Presidio Drive, 19th Ave., et cetera, on Sunday 
and holidays. 

In 1946 San Francisco was host to many conventions, 
notably the American Legion National Convention and 
the Shrine National Convention. On all such occasions 
the regular police details were augmented by able and 
willing members of the San Francisco Police Reserve. 

The average strength of the Reserve for the year 1946 
was five hundred and seventy; and these volunteers were 
all well trained and uniformed. Their training in police 
work consisted of both initial training and refresher courses. 

The course consisted of nightly classes for two weeks 
for each group; and included lectures, demonstration, 
training films, and class participation. 

Members of District Attorney Edmund Brown's office 
lectured each group on such criminal questions and court 
procedure as would pertain to regular police routine. 
Police Department members gave instructions in: Self 
defense, technique of arrest, panic and riot control, gen- 
eral police procedure, traffic accident investigation, crime 
details, use of firearms, first-aid and discipline. 

The Reserve force acted until March 1 under the direct 
guidance of Deputy Chief of Police Michael Riordan, 
one sergeant of police and four regular patrolmen acting 
as liaisons. On March 1 Supervising Captain Michael 
Gaffney was given the important post of directing the 
Police Reserves. 

Working in pairs, and usually in privately owned auto- 
mobiles bearing distinctive stars on the sides, members of 
the Reserve constantly every night patrolled each of the 
city's nine police districts, from 8:00 p. m. to midnight. 

During their assigned patrols the Reserves have, in 
many instances, shown outstanding initiative and bravery. 

That the Reserve force is a most valuable asset to the

Radio Patrol Duo Nabs Pair of Safe Openers 



The following letter was sent to Captain George Healy, 
of Northern Station: 

"Enclosed herewith are two checks for $25 each, which 
I would appreciate having you give to Officers E. Epting 
and James Egan. 

"I appreciate their alertness in the apprehension of the 
burglars who robbed our safe on February 15, 1946. 
This is a small token of my regard. 

"Thank you very much for all the courtesies that have 
been extended to me in this case. I assure you that I am 
very grateful that I did not suffer a greater loss in this 
particular robbery. 

GILLON LUMBER COMPANY, 
By R. E. Bygard." 

Thus is an expression of appreciation given to two 
members of the San Francisco Police Department for their 
outstanding capture of two men, with prison records and 
both graduates from Folsom State Penitentiary. 

On the night of Februarj' 15 the Gillon Lumber yard 
at 3931 Geary Boulevard was entered, the safe broken 
into and $350 in cash and $700 war bonds stolen. 

The two men, whom it developed had a car to transport 
them to the scene of their crime, got into that car after 
the safe cracking and were on their way down town. 

Officers Epting and Egan and Special Officer Jack 
Jenkins were in a prowl car when at North Point and 
Buchanan Streets they spotted a car with two characters, 
one a Negro, the other white, that didn't look okeh to 
them. They halted the car, got the two men out, gave 
them a frisk and found the bonds on one of the men and 
the cash on the other one. The one with the cash, William 
Robinson, confessed to the job, but his companion, a 
well known figure in the Fillmore district, who had the 
bonds, dummied up. 

Taking the two men to the station it was soon learned 
of the lumber safe job, and the two prisoners, caught by 
the alertness of the two prowl car patrolmen and the 
special, were booked for suspicion of burglary and en 
route to Sacramento. 

It developed that both men had served time in Folsom, 
and when Robinson who was released from parole some

four years ago and had bought a ranch in Shinletown 
up state, got a little cramped for ready cash he met up 
with his old friend, Mr. Price, and according to his story 
he was just taking one more chance at law breaking to 
get an honest start again. 

Robinson has done a lot of time in state prisons, and 
it is evidently cases like his that has caused law enforce- 
ment officers to protest at the administration of the parole 
law in which a repeater is given his freedom. 

It is fortunate, indeed, that San Francisco's PoHce 
Department has trained men, who can spot a suspect so 
surely as it was demonstrated in this case. Hardly a 
week goes by but some crook is picked up by men patrolling 
the streets under just such circumstances as recounted 
above. 

Egan and Epting told Captain Healy that they would 
split their reward with Special Officer Jenkins. A swell 
gesture we would say.

Peninsula Peace Officers Association 



The Peninsula Police Officer Association, which held 
its first meeting on March 8, 1927, has installed its officers 
for the year of 1947. They are: 

President — Cole Stafford, Redwood City. 

First Vice President — Russell Cunningham, San Bruno. 

Second Vice President — Jack Price, Burlingame. 

Secretary — Jack Harnett, Burlingame. 

Treasurer — ^Leroy Hubbard, Atherton. 

Trustee — W. Whipple. 

Sergeant-at-Arms — Edward Pence, San Mateo. 

The new treasurer, Leroy Hubbard, takes the place of 
Chief Jack Theuer of Burlingame, who was the first secre- 
tary of the Association and for many years has been the 
treasurer. Owing to his increased duties as Chief of 
Police he felt he could not give the time to the Association 
job that it warrants and stepped out. 

In the selection of Lieutenant Hubbard the Association 
gets a mighty capable officer. As a member of Chief John 
E. Farrell's force for a long time he has mastered all the 
requirements an efficient law enforcement officer should 
master. He has taken all courses given by the FBI, local 
police courses and is a member of the State and the Bay 
Counties Identification Associations. 

The secretan' and treasury have been voted a salary of

$15.00 per month, because of the increased demands 
made on these officials to handle the affairs of the As- 
sociation. 

With increased memberships, increased social activities, 
increased business requirements the salary raise is most 
appropriate. 

On February 27 the Association held its first informal 
dinner dance for the present year. The affair was staged 
at the Green Hills Country Club, Millbrae, and it was 
an affair to which thS members, their wives or the 
sweethearts of those who had no wives attended. The 
turnout was the largest ever marking any former event 
of its kind. A swell dinner was served, a fine orchestra 
furnished music for the dancers and nothing was left 
undone to make it a memorable occasion. 

Vice President Jack Price has been appointed chair- 
man of a public relations committee and he will see that 
the doings of the Association will get the publicity it 
warrants.

COMMENDATIONS BY S. F. P. D. CAPTAINS 



The following are copies of reports submitted to Chief 
Charles W. Dullea by Company Commanders of the San 
Francisco Police Department, which are quoted herein 
for the information of all of our members. The officers 
concerned have been personally commended by their 
Captains for the fine police services rendered, as outlined 
in these reports: 

"I respectfully call your attention to the fine police 
work performed by Sergeant Harold E. Anderson, Officers 
James M. Kirby and Robert McCarte, also Officer Dennis 
Smith of C. A, in the arrest of Carlton H. Brookshire, 
who was in the act of holding up Richard H. Crockett 
with a loaded automatic pistol when apprehended. At 
1:30 a. m., February 3, while Sergeant Anderson and 
Officers Kirby, R. McCarte and D. Smith were patrolling 
in radio car, they observed two men in front of 411 Eddy 
Street. One of these men had his hands raised in the air 
as though he were being held up. When the officers 
jumped from the radio car, they observed Brookshire with 
a pistol in his hand in the act of searching the pockets of 
Crockett. Officers Kirby and Smith grabbed Brookshire 
and he dropped the pistol. Sergeant Anderson and Officer 
McCarte grabbed the other man. 

"The complainant stated he was walking on Eddy 
Street, opposite 411 when he felt a hard object shoved 
in his back and he was ordered to hand over his money. 
He stated he was complying with the holdup man's order, 
when the police arrived. Brookshire is an ex-convict 
having served twice in the North Carolina Penitentiary 
for felonies in that state. By their vigilance and attentive- 
ness to duty these officers apprehended an ex-convict in 
the act of committing an armed robbery and who no 
doubt would have committed many more if not arrested 
at that time. I respectfully request that these officers be 
commended in special orders and that a copy of this 
request by placed in their folders. 

"Joseph M. Walsh, 
"Captain of Police, Co. A." 

"At 2 a. m., February 3, 1947, Limited Tenure Officer 
Robert Schmitz (now regular), and Special Officer John 
Murnin, Co. D, were patrolling on Market Street, near 
16th Street, when they noticed a man walking on Market 
Street, carrying what appeared to the officers to be a 
small hand satchel. The officers approached this man, 
calling to him to stop to be questioned as to his business 
at that hour, whereupon the suspect ran and dropped 
what he was carrying in an effort to get away, but was 
caught by the officers within a distance of one block. 

"What appeared to be a satchel was a hand radio 
which he had just stolen from the Ace Radio Shop, 
2267 Market Street. 

"Suspect confessed to this burglary, and another radio 
was found which he had stolen and placed in adjoining 
doorway under the steps. In his pockets were found 
$15.35, taken from the cash register. 



"Radios and money were identified by the owner and 
suspect was booked at Mission Station on charge of Burg- 
lary. Suspect, Everett L. Fulmer, 26 years, residence 117 
Fourth Street, admitted having served time in the Monroe 
Reformatory, Washington, and in the State Penitentiary, 
Idaho, for Auto Theft and Burglary. 

"Aloysius I. O'Brien, 
"Captain of Police, Co. D." 
* * * 

"I wish to call your attention to the fine police work 
performed by Sergeant Philip Kiely, Officers Albert Bagot 
and Edward Moran of Central Station. At 6:40 p. m., 
February 3, 1947, Officer Edward Moran responded in 
car to 501 Davis Street, office of West, Elliott and Gordon, 
where he was informed that between 6:15 p. m. and 
6:40 p. m., three overcoats and one man's suit had been 
stolen from said office. 

"Sergeant Philip Kiely, Officers Bagot and Moran made 
an immediate and thorough investigation, questioning and 
searching the rooms of all suspicious men in this area. 
Upon questioning and searching the room of one Leo 
Wright, they recovered the three overcoats and suit which 
had been reported stolen. In this room they also found 
a Remington Rand upright typewriter, valued at $150, 
and a man's navy blue cloth overcoat which were also 
stolen goods. 

"Leo Wright, 40 years, colored, was charged with two 
counts of burglary. Through the thoroughness and hard

and persistent work of these officers, they recovered all 
the stolen property from 501 Davis Street, and property 
taken in another burglary. 

"Joseph M. Walsh, 
"Captain of Police, Co. A." 

"At 10:10 p. m., February 15, Officers James L. Egan, 
Edward L. Epting and Patrol Special Officer Jack Jenkins, 
Northern Station, while patrolling in radio car No. 4, 
in the vicinity of Buchanan and North Point Streets, 
observed a 1941 Buick Coupe, License 49B223 (46), 
being driven around the neighborhood in a suspicious 
manner. They stopped this auto and questioned the 
occupants and found a number of burglar tools on the 
floor of the car. Further search revealed a Bank of 
America coin sack with the name MacKillop Hardware 
Co., 638 Clement Street, in the jocky box. 

"Officer Epting searched Nate Price, colored, one of 
the occupants, and found on his person, ten war bonds 
in the name of Robert, Ilia and Kay Byard. 

"Officer Egan searching the other occupant, William 
Robinson, white, found a considerable amount of cur- 
rency. Bringing the two suspects to the Northern Station, 
they requested the Richmond Station to check on the 
premises of 638 Clement Street. In the meantime, William 
Robinson gave and signed a full confession that he had 
entered the office of a lumber company, knocked off the 
combination, punched out the tumblers and burglarized 
the safe of its contents. At this time the Richmond Station 
reported that the safe of the Gillon Lumber Yard, 3931 
Geary Blvd., had been burglarized and the owner, Richard 
Byard identified among the other evidence, such as the 
Bank of America money sack, an old silver dollar which 
he said was in the safe. This silver dollar was found 
in the suspects' auto. 

"Both men were booked on Suspicion of Burglary and 
Enroute to Sacramento, California. Robinson in his con- 
fession, stated he had met Price "about 8 years ago while 
both were inmates of Folsom Prison.

and riding west on Market Street, on "L" street car, 
between 5 th and 6th Streets, Sergeant Daniel J. Moriarty, 
H. Q. Co., (City Prison) heard the squeaking of brakes 
and investigating the cause, he observed a grey convert' 
ible coupe stopped on Market Street, and immediately 
behind it, the prone body of a pedestrian on the street. 
The driver of the coupe imjnediately drove forward, full 
speed, east on Market Street. Sergeant Moriarty jumped 
from the street car and hailed a passing automobile eind 
gave chase. He was unable to overtake the fleeing car, 
due to traffic along Market Street, however, he obtained 
the license number and description of the automobile. He 
immediately relayed this information via the nearest patrol 
box to Inspector Daniel Shelly, Bureau of Inspectors. As 
a result, one Russell Alley, San Bruno, was arrested for 
violation of Section 480, Vehicle Code. Alley is a former 
convict. In view of this excellent police work, while off 
duty, I recommend the commendation of Sergeant Daniel 
j. Moriarty, assigned to the City Prison.

NORTHERN CALIFORNIA 

POLICE COMMUNICATION OFFICERS 

ASSOCIATION 

Merrill LeBouef, President 
A. R. TaggA'RT, Secretary-Treasurer 



The regular monthly meeting of the Northern Cali- 
fornia Police Communication Officers' Association was 
held in Sacramento on January 9, 1947, at the Com- 
mercial Hotel. Our host was Sergeant E. H. McKee 
(California Highway Patrol). 

The meeting was opened by President Don Hossack, who 
suggested we omit the morning session of this meeting be- 
cause of the late arrival of most members due to weather 
conditions. On motion by McKee, seconded by Maybee, 
all present voted in favor of this suggestion. 

Meeting was recessed for lunch. 

After an excellent lunch, meeting was called to order 
and reports of committees followed; Henri Kirby, (C. W.) 
Committee reported progress. At this point Bill Koch and 
Brower McMurphy explained the proposed plans for a 
Statewide Phone and C. W. Network. Preliminaries are 
completed and a bill is being drafted which will be in- 
troduced in the legislature this year. 

Charles Simpson, Interference Committee, a letter from 
Ero Erickson of APCO, reporting interference in the 
East on 74.14 mcs. from California Highway Patrol Re- 
peaters was read. Further study will be made on the basis 
of this information. 

Brower McMurphy, Engineering and Frequency Com- 
mittee, reports the Contra Costa County Sheriff's Office 
requests frequency clearance on 73.54 mcs. for their Mt. 
Diablo Repeater. This is a frequency shift to place this 
repeater in that portion of the spectrum as approved by 
the F. C. C. Clearance was also requested foi a mobile 
frequency on 155.01 mcs. On motion by Ray Gada, sec- 
onded by Walt Keller, the members present unanimously 
approved the above requests. 

Discussion by Merrill LeBouef, George Burton, and 
Brower McMurphy regarding frequency shift.s necessary 
for some members per gentlemen's agreement at time fre- 
quency was granted. These changes will allow us to get 
the maximum use of the channels assigned to the Emer- 
gency Services. 

Membership application of Thomas Bayley (Monterey 
County Sheriff's Office), was submitted to the members 
after approval by the Board of Directors. On motion by 
Brower McMurphy, seconded by John Maybee, the mem- 
bers present unanimously voted Tom Bayley a regular 
member of this Association. 

Introduction of members and guests followed Merrill 
LeBouef introduced as his guests, W. H. Forward (Sheriff 
of Yuba County); Y. W. Carpenter (Sheriff of Sutter 
County) , and L. A. Duncan (Chief of Police, Yuba City) . 
A motion by Merrill LeBouef that Sheriff Carpenter, 



Sheriff Forward and Chief Duncan be appointed Hon- 
orary Members of this Association. This motior, seconded 
by Sergeant McKee and unanimously approved by the 
members. Sheriff Carpenter, Sheriff Forward and Chief 
Duncan all expressed their approval of this Association's 
activities. A recent survey shows that Suttei^ and Yuba 
Counties have one of the finest co-ordinated Police Com- 
muncations Systems in the State. These law enforcement 
executives and Engineer Merrill LeBouef should feel very 
proud of this achievement. 

Nominations and election of Officers for 1947 was 
next in order. Nominations for President were opened, 
with Merrill LeBouef nominated for President at our 
December 12, 1946, meeting. There being no further 
nominations, a motion by Walt Keller, seconded by John 
Maybee, that the nominations for President be closed, 
unanimously approved by the members. 

Nominations for Vice President were opened. George 
Burton was nominated for this office at the December 12,

this Association by our new President for the benefit if 
our new members and guests. 

George Burton suggested a letter of commendation be 
sent the F. C. C. regarding the new Construction Permits 
and hberahzation plan they have. Discussion of the new 
C. P.'s by Bill Koch, Jim Lewis, and Walt Keller cleared 
up the few points some of us were in doubt about. 

Jim Lewis reopened discussions regarding a joint meet- 
ing of the N. C. P. C. O. A. and the CaHfornia Pohce 
Radio Association prior to the APCO Conference to be 
held in Los Angeles this year. After considerable dis' 
cussion by Art Sowle, Bill Koch, Brower McMurphy, and 
Sergeant McKee, the following were decided: McKee, 
who is leaving for L. A., will contact Bill Whiting and 
Herschel Calvert of the C. P. R. A. and conclude arrange- 
ments for them to attend our February meeting at which 
time details can be settled regarding the joint meeting. 
Our Reno meeting was settled at the same time and Presi- 
dent LeBouef appointed a committee composed of Henri 
Kirby, Art Sowle and E. H. McKee to complete all details, 
and submit a report at our February meeting. 

Reports from our Commercial Members: Fred Deatken 
furnished calendars to all members present through the 
countesy of the General Electric Company. Jack Maxwell 
(Motorola) introduced Art Reese, new West Coast Re- 
gional Manager for Motorola, who will open offices in 
San Francisco. J. P. Matthews (Furrer & Ulster, Dis- 
tributors for American Bosch) joined the ranks of our 
Commercial Members. 

Our Technical discussion was opened. John Maybee 
requested we renew our efforts to obtain speakers on tech- 
nical subjects. There were so many suggestions by our 
members on this subject that a committee will be oppointed 
at our next meeting to coordinate this activity. 

Brower McMurphy spoke on the new Alameda County 
Prison Farm, located on the former site of the U. S. 
Navy's Camp Shoemaker in Livermore 'Valley. Excellent 
facilities for Law Enforcement Agencies and our Associa- 
tion are available. 

Bill Koch distributed mimeograph copies of formulas, 
and information necessary to convert the Army Surplus 
AS-20A/TRC-1 Antenna Array to our use. 

George Burton suggested an Official Seal be adopted 
by this Association. A report regarding costs, design and 
etc., will be submitted at our next meeting. 

Suggestions for our February meeting were requested. 
George Burton offered Martinez; Charles Simpson sug- 
gested Monterey. As we are expecting some Los Angeles 
members at our next meeting, a motion by Ray Gada, 
seconded by Walt Keller, and approved by the members 
that our next meeting be held in Monterey on February 
13, 1947.

S. F, P. Widows and Orphans Aid Ass*n's Annual Show 



The annual concert and ball of the San Francisco Police 
Widows' and Orphans' Aid Association will be held this 
year on the night of April 19, the anniversary of a very 
eventful occurrence in this city. 

The general committee headed by Captain Joseph 




Captain Joseph Walsh 

Walsh, president; Lieutenant George Hippley, first vice 
president; Lieutenant Jack Eker, second vice president; 
Henry Schutzer, treasurer, and Inspector Thomas FitZ' 
Patrick, secretary'treasurer have a live bunch of members 
of the Department appointed for the various committees. 
These committees are charged with making this the out- 
standing entertainment the Association has presented since 
its organization in 1878. 

The program which will precede the grand march and 
ball will be featured by leading acts from radio, screen, 
night clubs and the stage. There will be old time dancing 
for the oldsters who do not care for the modern steps. 
There will he presentation of awards to those who have 
been given meritorious citations for outstanding police 
duty since the last show was presented. President Henry 
Smith, who retires with this show will be given a emblem 
in taken of the appreciation of the membership of the 
Association for his earnest service as presiding officer 
for the past 12 months. 

Governor and Mrs. Earl Warren, Mayor and Mrs. 
Roger D. Lapham, Police Commissioners John Wesley 
Howell, E. L. Turkington and Edwin V. Mills and their 



wives, and Chief and Mrs. Charles W. Dullea will head 
the grand march. 

Tickets are being sold by all members of the San Fran- 
cisco Police Department, and they are a dollar a piece, 
and no entertainment these days can match the program 
that purchasers are entitled to witness. 

It is sincerely hoped by the Association that the sale 
of tickets this year will exceed any former year. The 
treasury has been depleted by $84,000 the past year. 
This sum was paid out to widows and orphans of police 
officers who died during the past 12 months. This annual 
show is necessary to make it possible to meet this huge 
drain and bring relief to those bereaved by the death 
of their wage earners, who because of the hazardousness 
of their calling are precluded from carrying regular in- 
surance like ordinary people.

SAN MATEO HAS MORE POLICE 

(Continued from Page 9) 

Also he is deeply grately to Chief Dullea for per- 
mitting his new officers to take their course at the San 
Francisco Police Academy. 

His appreciation is shared by Inspector Tom Connors 
who has the investigating of so-called major crimes. 

Chief O'Brien had added duties for his Department, 
He has the policing of the Bay Meadows Racetrack barns, 
where over 1000 horses and 1200 men will be located 
handling animals entered in the Tanforan races during 
the meet which opens this month. It's old work for him 
as he has so successfully looked after the Bay Meadow 
racetrack in police matters ever since he took over the 
job of Police Chief. He will relieve Chief William Maher 
of considerable work, as Chief Maher has the job of 
pohcing the Tanforan track.

ROBBERY DETAIL GETS PRAISE 

"On the evening of February 6, 1947, three armed 
men entered our apartment, 1991 California Street, bound, 
gagged and robbed us. They stayed over two hours, 
searching the place. After freeing ourselves we placed 
a call to the Inspector's Bureau, Robbery Detail. We 
want to commend the officers who so promptly responded 
to our call, also the inspectors for the courtesy and efficient 
handling of the case. We understand that two of the 
men have been sentenced and we sincerely hope the third 
man will soon be apprehended. We thank you and the

' SO. CALIF. TO HAVE TRAFFIC COURSE 



A two- week course in traffic police methods will be 
conducted in Los Angeles, March 17-29, by the North- 
western University Traffic Institute and the Traffic Divi- 
sion of the International Association of Chiefs of Pohce. 
The school, called the Southern Cahfomia Traffic Pohce 
Institute, is to be conducted chiefly for West Coast dty, 
county and state police officers and highway patrolmen. 

The 7 5 -hour course is being sponsored by the University 
of California at Los Angeles through University Extension 
and the Department of Engineering. 

Cooperating in the presentation of the course are the 
Los Angeles chapter of the National Safety Council, the 
Los Angeles Police Department, and a committee of chiefs 
of police, headed by Alvin Slaight, Long Beach, CaUfomia. 

D. Gerald O'Connell, assistant director of training for 
the Northwestern University Traffic Institute, will be in 
charge of the course. The Institute's director, Franklin 
M. Kreml, will participate in instruction. 

The course is designed to train qualified officers in plan- 
ning and directing sound programs of traffic control and 
accident prevention in their departments. 

Police phases of traffic control, with both accidents and 
congestion being stressed, will be taught by qualified in- 
structors from sponsoring organizations and other agencies 
who are particularly experienced in their field. Instruction 
will be adapted to both large and small departments and 
to both rural and urban conditions. Problems facing 
police increasingly in the traffic field, and techniques to 
combat them, will be treated by lectures, discussions, 
demonstrations, texts and films. 

The Institute is open to all officers in active poUce 
service who have the approval of their department heads. 

In addition to Mr. Kreml and Mr. O'Connell, and

BARSTOW'S CONSTABLE 

(Continued from Page 22) 

San Bernardino County, the Highway Patrol, and during 
the war years drew high praise from the various war 
agencies for his close cooperation. There were many 
fighting men located on army posts near Barstow and they 
posed a problem, not so much from the men themselves 
but to keep out foreign agents getting information that 
would be damaging to our cause. Constable Henderson 
worked with FBI agents, navy and army intelligence men 
and he did his part most creditable. 

Constable Henderson has 12 deputies to assist him 
who draw no salaries, but you would think they were 
the highest paid peace officers in the land to see the way 
they pitch in to keep Barstow free from cr;me. The 
criminal part of the Constable's job in Barstow is much 
greater than the civil end of the position, and the force 
of men under Constable Henderson are kept mighty busy. 

While Barstow is usually looked upon as a busy rail' 
road center, it has nearby many scenic attractions. The 
most imposing one is Rainbow basin, seven miles south 
of Barstow, where on walls of rocks there is frozen all 
the colors of the rainbow, creating a most beautiful and 
imposing spectacle. Many a visitor takes the Camp Irwin 
Highway to view this spot.

TRUCK LOADS OF LOOT 

(Continued from Page 1 8) 

Any good American, be he millionaire or just a mere 
voter, will buy, or accept a radio, auto tires, cartons of 
cigarettes, or a bottle, or a case of "bottled in bond" 
water of life. 

Knowing our national desire and supposed weaknesses, 
our four "land pirates", about a year ago decided to 
supply the market for radios, tires, cigarettes, and "the 
cup that cheers," in large quantities at reduced prices, 
yes, ridiculously reduced prices. 

From the very first, business was good, extremely good. 
No ofEce or factory expenses — in fact no expense of any 
kind to our four land pirates — and cash on the barrel 
being their business slogan. Everything was rosy. The 
boys felt proud of themselves. 

Money has an impelling allure. The boys did not let 
any grass grow under their feet — the more they got, the 
more they wanted. If anything should go wrong they 
had an aUbi — they were teamsters, hard working teamsters. 

Money, big money, has a softening influence — the 
result was that driving trucks became irksome to the firm 
members, individually and collectively. Perhaps the actual 
handling of their land piracy was causing a fraying of 
their tempers. Anyhow, they quit being active teamsters, 
and drove trucks only when the truck was laden with 
the particular treasure they were handling. 

Throughout the Bay area, for the past year or more, 
many a teamster has felt as if the sky were falling, when.

emerging from a restaurant after a much needed meal, 
he had found just good old fresh air where he had parked 
his truck and tractor. 

I Regularly, trucks and tractors laden with tens of 
I thousands of dollars worth vanished as if by magic. Uh' 
I injured but empty the truck would later be found miles 
I away from where the magician had lifted it. 
; All the police of San Francisco and the Bay Counties 
could do was patiently check deliveries of whiskey, radios, 
tires and cigarettes. The quantities taken were immense 
and would need handling and rehandling. 

The members of our Automobile Boosters detail spent 
many weary hours, and traveled thousands of miles 
checking trucks both in transit and delivery. 

We all know what happens to the jug that goes to the 
well too often — and to those who tried to break the bank 
at Monte Carlo a second time. 

Well, on Sunday, January 12, 1947, the firm of the 
four "land pirates" had a crash — a fatal crash, just as 
the bells at a nearby church tolled that it was noon. 

The head of the Automobile Boosters detail. Inspector 
Jerome F. Smith, his right hand bower, Inspector William 
Merrick, and Inspector Jesse Ayers, of the Pawnshop 
Detail, officially announced themselves to three of the 
great four "land pirates." 

They also informed said "land pirates" that further 
delivery of the three-hundred bales of cigarettes the 
pirates were just making delivery of would be taken care 
of by the San Francisco Police Department. 

Inspector Jesse Ayers, taking no chances with the said 
Sunday Merchants, found a .38 calibre, loaded revolver 
on one of the three members of the firm — Wayne King, 
born in Michigan, a "loser" and also a graduate (paroled) 
of Folsom in 1942. 

The firm was caught in the act of making a delivery 
(to a "fence") of 300 bales of cigarettes with a value 
of $70 a bale. It would have been a nice Sabbath for the 
firm if — and that small word for them should be in cap- 
itah, the biggest capitals in a printer's selection. 

On Tuesday, December 10, 1946, a tractor and van

were stolen from the parking lot of the CaHfornia Motors 
Express Co., Ltd. The tractor when stolen was loaded 
with five-hundred and twenty-three bales of Chesterfields 
—$36,610 worth. 

Now the four "land pirates" had a port of distribution. 
That port of distribution was located in the Potrero dis- 
trict, behind a high board fence at Keith and Wallace 
streets. 

The San Francisco Police Department is up-to-date. 
Yes, so much up-to-date, that, in order to snare the four 
pirates, the Police Department had moving pictures made 
of the $36,000 van and tractor of December 10, 1946. 
And these pictures were being actually shown in the 
Potrero district within a block of the vacant lot where 
the truck and tractor were unloaded by our "land pirates." 
Potrero people are certainly not nosey. 

While these four were under arrest, the members of 
the Booster's detail were busily checking on "leads" they 
had discovered. 

Today, that fine group that comprises the "Booster's 
Detail" plus a couple of members of the Pawnshop Detail, 
are in command, while the millionaire four combine worry 
about lawyers and jail sentences. 

We have four bold, bad, men in custody. We have 
very high priced exhibits of the goods, wares, and mer- 
chandise handled by our up and coming four. 

Over a hundred thousand dollars worth has been re- 
covered and the Inspectors of the Auto Boostnr's detail 
are daily urxovering "fences" and property tied up with 
the four "land pirates."

Talking to them, they are no Einsteins — just the com' 
munistic creed of today's type: Get what you can, how- 
ever you can; and let the devil take the hindmost. 

The four land pirates are Julian Bazsanes, with charges 
of rape in 1938; and receiving stolen property against 
him in 1947: Anthony Scardino, born in Louisiana, who 
arrived in San Quentin via grand theft and burglary 
charges in Ne\^ Orleans and San Diego, in 1940; and is 
now awaiting a -return trip to San Quentin or Folsom; 
Wayne King, of Midiigan, paroled from Folsom in 1942, 
with prison record in Deer Lodge, Montana; Lester Lewty, 
of Washington, who, when too young for sentence to 
San Quentin or Folsom, was sent to Preston, California. 

Yes, birds of a feather do flock together. 

With new discoveries of the cached loot coming to 
light every day, it looks as if the State of California will 
see that these birds of a feather will have a dove cote or 
aviary in San Quentin or Folsom in the near future. 

The highly respectable San Francisco and San Mateo 
merchants who acted as "fences" for the big four, will, 
in all probability, have an opportunity of admiring the 
sun, moon and stars from inside the high walls of one 
of the world's largest penal institutions — San Quentin 
Prison in the near future.

While the bulk of the work of rounding up this gang 
of "land pirates" was performed by Inspector Smith who 
since 1940 has headed the Boosters Detail, Inspectors 
William Merrick and John O'Keefe of the Detail, and 
Inspectors Ayer and Joseph Engler of the Pawnshop De- 
tail, every member of Inspector Smith's Detail had a 
hand in the great roundup. The other members are In-

Inspector O'Keefe is now on the Pawnshop Detail under 
Lieutenant Samuel Miller, who also now has Inspector 
James O'Neill, brought in from the Burglary Detail. 
O'Neill takes the place of Inspector Charles Gallavin. 

Since he was assigned to the Boosters Detail Inspector 
Smith has done a great job in rounding up thieves who 
break into parked cars and take valuables that each year

Inspector Merrick to Waterfront Detail 

With the retirement of Inspector Bartholomew Kelleher 
who for over a quarter of a century has worked the Water- 
front for the Bureau of Inspectors, teamed up until his 
retirement with Inspector Mickael Desmond, a vacancy 
was created in this all-important unit of the Bureau of 
Inspectors. 




Inspector William Merrick. 

Inspector George Stanton, the tallest man in the San 
Francisco Police Department, an old-time Coast League 
baseball pitcher, and a mighty conscientious police officer 
took the place of Inspector Desmond when he went out 
on pension. On March 3 Inspector William Merrick was 
assigned to take the vacancy created by Inspector Kelle- 
her's leave. 

Inspector Merrick is well equipped to fill a place on 
the Waterfront Detail. He has a long seafaring record. 

At the age of 19 he had a first mate's license, and when 
he entered the Police Department over 2? years ago had 
master's papers that licensed him to sail vessels of all 
categories on all the seas of the world. 

When the war broke out he joined the naval forces, 
and, as a Captain for four years, sailed into every war 
zone a vessel could go. He piloted many a boat loaded 
with valuable cargoes comprising ammunition, high ex- 
plosives, fire arms of all makes and sizes, supplies for the 
fighting men, and he never lost a pound of the cargoes he 
was responsible for. 

He knows the waterfront, the men who work on the 
docks, the officers and men who make up the crews of the 
vessels making this port, and he'll maintain the fine record 
of the two men who have hung up their guns after over 
two decades along the Embarcadero. As a team he and 
Inspector Stanton will give the waterfront the effective 
service in law enforcement that has prevailed for so many 
years in this city.

March, 1947 



NEW POLICE COMMISSIONER 

(Continued from Page 1 0) 
panies, has it shown the growth it has enjoyed since 
Commissioner Mills became associated with it. 

In 1930 the assets of the Fireman's Fund group was in 
round numbers $38,000,000. The figure for 1946 was 
$106,000,000. Premiums written in 1930 totalled $17,- 
000,000; for last year it showed the remarkable gain 
to $41,314,000. 

He is highly regarded in the ranks of insurance men of 
this country and formerly served on the Board of Directors 
of the Controllers Institute of America, of which he also 
was formerly president. 

With all the demands made upon him by the Insurance 
Company he serves he has taken time to participate in 
civic affairs. He aided Mayor Roger D. Lapham in his 
campaign for the airport bonds. He was a director of the 
Chamber of Commerce for three years during which 
the Golden Gate International Exposition was held on 
Treasure Island in 1939 and 1940. He contributed much 
to the success of that great public enterprise. 

He has also contributed his time and experience to the 
Red Cross and Community Chest Drives, and he was a 
member of the present grand jury, from which he resigned 
on his appointment to the Police Commission. 

The new Commissioner is a vice president of the 
Commercial Club, a member of the Olympic Club, San 
Francisco Golf Club, Bohemian Club, and of Alta Vista 
Lodge No. 464, F. &? A. M. 

With his wife he resides at 16 Twenty-fifth Avenue. 
He is the father of a son, Edward V. Mills, Jr., a Stanford 
graduate, who is a practicing attorney in this city; and a 
daughter, Mrs. Bernard J. Ford, who also lives in San 
Francisco. 

Commissioner Mills with his background of success in 
the insurance world, his activities for civic betterment 
and his interest in various organizations of which he is a 
member, gives high promise that he will continue, as a 
member of the Police Commission, the fine work the board 
has carried on under Mayor Lapham's administration.

Director English 

(Continued from Page 12) 

In 1943 he was loaned to the Civilian War Council, 
where he served creditably until its disbandment a 
year later. 

During 1944 he was sent to the National Police Acad- 
emy, where he graduated with high honors and shortly 
after his return from Washington, D. C, he was made 
Director of Personnel on December 1, 1944. 

As Director of Personnel he has in addition to his other 
duties the conduct of the San Francisco Police Training 
Academy. Under his direction it has carried out the 
ideas of Chief Charles W. Dullea to make it the best in 
the nation, and since he took over the important work 
of guiding its destinies he has conducted the largest classes 
ever to be put through the intensive courses. Not only 
are all recruits required to take the course of instruction, 
but many officers from outside the city, and members of 
the military police of the U. S. Army are taking ad- 
vantages of the San Francisco Police Academy police 
training.

\ Lieutenant Eker 

f Continued from Page 1 3 ) 
to the struggling man, and with the help of a second 
rescuer who came along, got the hunter safely ashore. 
For this he was given meritorious service by the Police 
Commission. 

While in the Social Service Bureau he worked with 
iFolicewomen Kathlyene Sullivan on the notorious Jean 
Walters case. This young country girl fell into the hands 
of some despicable characters, who despite her youth, lived 
off her earnings in various brothels around the bay area. 
The leaders of this gang were rounded up by the work 
of Sergeant Eker and Mrs. Sullivan. 

Some ten years ago he met a charming young San 
Francisco girl, the chief telephone operator of the St. 
Francis Hotel. This was Miss Laurine O'Brien. Miss 
O'Brien accompanied her boy friend to Dingley's coaching 
'school, which Sergeant was attending, getting ready for 
jthe Lieutenant's examination. She became interested in 
the study and started some on her own account with the 
'result that she took the examination for police telephone 
operator and passed number three on the list of success- 
ful contestants. 

On September 2, 1938, Sergeant Eker and Miss O'Brien 
were married. 

Since September 2, 1943, Lieutenant Eker has served 
ion one of the night watches at Northern Station. On 
;the other night watch is Lieutenant Jeremiah Coughlan 
i who is also on the Captain's list, who with other successful 
'Lieutenants will be given stories in later editions of the 
Police and Pe-olCE Officers' Journal. 



Lieutenant Quigley 

(Continued from Page 1 3 ) 

assigned to the Richmond Station, where he remained 
ever since, handling one of the night platoons of Captain 
Frank McGuire's company. 

At the election last November when the people voted 
a charter amendment giving more wages, a shorter work 
week, and full pensions for officers disabled in the per- 
formance of their duties and widows of policemen killed 
in the service of the Department, he shared the job of 
handling the campaign with Robert Callahan of the Fire 
Department, and the huge vote rolled up for two amend- 
ments the police and fire department members sought, is 
largely due to the well managed plans these two officers 
presented to the voting public. 

Lieutenant Quigley was born in San Francisco January 
27, 1896, and followed the trade of blacksmith until he 
joined the Police Department. He is married, his wife 
was Miss Lorraine Rodney, member of a pioneer San 
Francisco family, and the couple has five children, three 
daughters and two sons. 

Many of the successful Lieutenants who made the 
Captains list got their start through the coaching that 
Lieutenant Quigley gave them through their progress 
from patrolman to Captains.

Page 67 



"May I take this means of expressing the appreciation 
and gratitude of this office for the splendid aid and 
assistance given us in rounding up a group of safe 
burglars wanted badly in this county. I know it is the 
usual cooperation that men under your direction give 
I every department, but I believe that in view of the im- 
I portance of the arrests, special credit should be given 
I to the men concerned. Unfortunately I do not have the 
i names of the uniformed men who were detailed by 
Captain Healy of the Northern Station, but I know that 
Inspectors Nelder, Shelley and Atkinson went out from 
the Inspectors Bureau, and I wish to express to them on 
behalf of the men of this department our deep apprecia- 
tion. Again, with many thanks, I am,

CHIEF F. J. O'FERRALL GRATEFUL 

"The purpose of this letter is to bring to your attention 
an instance of splendid cooperation rendered by Traffic 
Officer Eugene Osuna, on November 13, wherein he was 
instrumental in apprehending and holding in custody, 
until the arrival of Inspectors from this office, one Frank 
Romonovitch, a most persistent narcotic violator. Ro- 
monovitch had presented a forged narcotic prescription 
at Young-Casselman Prescription Pharmacy, 432 Sutter 
Street, and Harold Stein, Pharmacist, being notified of 
activities of this man, notified the police and Officer 
Osuna appeared in response to the call. Mr. Stein 
pointed out the forger to Officer Osuna with the result 
that Romonovitch is now in custody, charged with forg' 
ing narcotic prescriptions. This was excellent cooperation 
and it is appreciated by this office. 

F. J. OTerrall, Chief, 

Division of Narcotic Enforcement, 

San Francisco Office."

March, 1947 



JIM McFADDEN WITH 
FRANK LYNCH 

Jimmy McFadden, for 25 years a member of the edito- 
rial staff of The Examiner, ten years of which were as a 
police reporter at the Hall of Justice, in San Francisco, 
has left the newspaper field and is now associated with 
Frank Lynch in his bail bond agency at 621 Washing- 
ton Street. 

Jim McFadden, during his many years as a newspaper 
reporter, which found him covering the water front, and 
radio, along with his police reporting, has made many 
friends who will be glad to learn of his new vocation. 
He is an old boyhood friend of Frank Lynch, they going 
through school together, and McFadden will naturally 
do his share to carry on the bail bond business on the 
high plane that Lynch has followed since he opened up 
in this line of business endeavor nearly three years ago. 

Lynch, the son of a veteran police officer, who died 
recently, and McFadden with his experience on the police 
beat form a team that will do their utmost to serve those 
who are unfortunate to run afoul of the law, and are 
worthy of bail service.

California's industrial development be- 
fore and during the war has become 
permanent growth — the post-war trend 
is upward! We are going places in a 
big way! ... in industry, payrolls, popu- 
lation and markets. 

Immediately after wartime building 
restrictions were lifted, P. G. and E. 
began to provide increased service for 
Northern and Central California to 
meet nev/ and increased demands for gas 
and electricity and to build well ahead 
of anticipated growth. In 1946 approx- 
imately ^45,000,000 was spent toward 
that end. AND NOW a comprehensive 
5-year expansion program has been de- 
veloped calling for the expenditure of 
an additional ^300,000,000 by the end 
of 1951. 

New power plants will be constructed 
and others enlarged, adding about 
1,000,000 horsepower to P. G. and E.'s 
power capacity. Also included in the 
program is a vast systemwide expan- 
sion of transmission and distribution 
facilities. 

P. G. and E. will be fully ready to 
help Northern and Central California 
grow during the busy years ahead 
with a power capacity of more than 
3,500,000 horsepower.

Deputy Chief Michael Riordan of SFPD 



By Opie L. Warner 



Michael Riordan, Deputy Chief of PoHce of the City 
and County of San Francisco, was just a patrolman 26 
years ago. In the years between 1921 and 1940 Deputy 
Chief Riordan accomplished the apparently impossible 
task of holding seven graduated ranks in the ascending 
scale in the San Francisco Police Department. 

At the present post war prosperity times the Police 
Department finds it almost impossible to secure applicants 




'i 



Depity Chief Michael Riordan 

to fill the quota of police personnel allowed by the Charter 
of the City and County. In 1912 and 1913 prosperity 
was very much around the corner, hence, when the Civil 
Service Commission announced a police entrance examina- 
tion hundreds of hale, hearty, local young men gladly 
filled out the necessary entrance blanks with the ardent 
hope they would secure a steady job with equitable pay. 
Michael Riordan who had arrived in San Francisco 
some few years previously from County Kerry, in the 
neighborhood of the famous Killarney Lakes, was one 



of the thousand'odd young men who took the athletic, 
physical and academical tests and was number five on a 
published Civil Service list of two hundred eligibles. That 
was a good omen for the present Deputy Chief. He has 
shot at and secured par ever since in his upward climb 
through civil service tests for department promotion. 

Everyone loves a winner and so-called success stories are 
popular with all classes of readers; and Deputy Chief 
Riordan is a definite member of the winning class, from 
every standpoint; and is popular. 

A police department of the size of the San Francisco 
Police Department has quite a considerable annual turn- 
over, and our Deputy Chief, Michael Riordan, is a shining 
example to the large youthful group of the department 
that there is always ample room in the top brackets for 
the man who has the necessary industry and courage in 
his system to strive for them. 

From the Department records we find that our present 
Deputy Chief was made a Corporal April 20th, 1921; a 
Sergeant March 12th, 1923 ; a Lieutenant September 17th, 
1923; a Captain November 8th, 1927; Department Chief 
Clerk January 1st, 1929; Department Secretary April 
16th, 1937; and Deputy Chief February 16th, 1940. 

His meteoric climb in the department meant constant 
and serious study from his entrance as a patrolman on 
March 31st, 1913 to November 8th, 1927, when he was 
appointed Captain. During his eight years as a patrolman 
he took a business course and became a proficient stenog- 
rapher and also studied for and passed the state bar ex- 
amination as attorney. In 1929 he took a year leave of 
absence from the Department to get experience as a 
practicing lawyer. This experience he has since success- 
fully used in department legislation, such as defending 
fellow police officers, drawing up proposed charter 
amendments affecting the Department, extradition papers, 
and so on. 

The Chief, Charles W. DuUea, and the present Deputy 
Chief were always one-two in promotion tests, and, on 
February 16th, 1940, when Captain of Inspectors Dullea 
was made Chief of Police he immediately selected his old 
time competitor as his deputy. They are a great combina- 
tion as heading one of the most important police depart- 



rage 4 



fULlUt /MSU rt/\i^E, urriL>r,t<.a juuimn/m. 



/April, ivf/ 



ments in the nation. After a short period as a patrolman 
Chief Dullea was transferred to the Hall of Justice where 
he has been a top ace for the past thirty years; and the 
Deputy Chief has had district poHce experience in both 
downtown and outlying police districts, having served terms 
in the Central Station, the Park Station, the Western 
Station and the Mission Station. 

The traffic situation has become a major police problem 
and the Chief, feeling that broadmindedness, a thorough 
knowledge of the situation and more than usual executive 
ability were necessary in the department member respon- 
sible for a continuous handling of this modern nightmare, 
selected the thorough and genial Deputy Chief as supreme 
head of the San Francisco Police Traffic Bureau. With 
the zest the Deputy Chief has always shown in his many 
police assignments he handles this undoubtedly heavy bur- 
den with remarkable success; and the members of the 
various city groups interested in the local traffic problem 
are always glad to hear his pros and cons on San Fran- 
cisco's traffic problems. 

In matters connected with his native Ireland the Deputy 
Chief has always been in the foreground and has held high 
rank nationally and locally in the Ancient Order of Hi- 
bernians of which organization he is now head of the 
Resolutions Committee. At national conventions of the 
Ancient Order of Hibernians our Deputy Chief has re- 
ceived a general acclaim as a forceful orator. 



CAPT. 



ENGLISH TO NORTHWESTERN 
TRAFFIC INSTITUTE 



On April 10, Captain James English left for Evanston, 
111., where he will enter the Northwestern University 
Traffic Institute Training Course. This is in line with 
Chief Charles W. Dullea's plan to fit Captain English 
with all the knowledge it is possible to obtain and which 
the traffic problems of this city may be intelligently 
handled. 

With Deputy Chief Michael Riordan in overall charge 
of Traffic and with Captain English as his immediate 
assistant. Traffic is bound to be brought under more 
control. 

Captain English is a graduate from the FBI National 
Police Academy and with his graduation from the North- 
western Traffic course he will have the background to 
attack his new job well fitted in basic training. 

He will be back during the last of May.

LT. A. J. NICOLINI TOPS LIST 

When the list of successful contestants for promotion 
from the rank of sergeant to lieutenant was made public. 
The high man on that list was Sergeant Alvin J. Nicolini, 
now Lieutenant Alvin J. Nicolini. 

Lieutenant Nicolini was born in San Francisco on 
March 7, 1899. He became a machinist and followed 
that trade until August, 1924, when he became a member 
of the San Francisco Police Department. 

He was promoted to Corporal July 1, 1934, made a 
sergeant May 1, 1937, and now is up in the second highest 
rank of the Department. 

He has served in Companies F, E, C, Headquarters, 
but he has served most of his time in Central District. 
As a patrolman in this district he built up a fine reputation 
for enforcing the law and was feared by law breakers and 
respected by the law abiding and his superiors in the 
Department. 

On April H, 1946, he was brought into the Bureau of 
Special Service, under Inspector Percy Keneally, and 
there he was a valued hand, as he knew all the workings 
of the easy winners who sought to outsmart the regular 
patrolman by sneaking gambling, bookmaking, prostitution 
and other small time crimes. 

He is now in charge of one of the night shifts of the 
business office of the Inspectors Bureau.

FBI National Academy Graduates 84 Peace Officers 



The Honorable Everett McKinley Dirksen, Congress- 
man from Illinois, and Doctor Peter Marshall, Chaplain 
of the United States Senate and Pastor of the New York 
Avenue Presbyterian Church, Washington, D. C, ad- 
dressed the graduating class of the Thirty-fourth Session 




Director John Edoar Hoover 

of the FBI National Academy at exercises held in the 
Departmental Auditorium in Washington, D. C, on 
March 28, 1947, according to an announcement made 
by John Edgar Hoover, Director of the Federal Bureau 
of Investigation. 

Diplomas were awarded to eighty-eight law enforce- 
ment officers from thirty-one states, the District of Colum- 
bia, Hawaii, Alaska and the Netherlands West Indies. 
The graduate of the Netherlands West Indies was Michiel

Captain Scott F. Lincecum of the Redding Police De- 
partment. 

Established in 193^ the FBI National Academy is de- 
signed to train local law enforcement officers as police 
instructors. Following their graduation these men return 
to their respective communities and set up training courses 
within their local departments. The course given by the 
Academy is twelve weeks in length with emphasis placed 
on such courses as police organization and administration, 
traffic control, investigative techniques, the operation of 
police laboratories, fingerprint identification and firearms 
training. Since its inception 1,558 men have graduated 
from the FBI National Academy. 



The faculty of the National Academy is made up of 
Special Agents of the FBI, technicians from the FBI 
Laboratory and others oustanding in specialized fields of 
law enforcement. 

Graduates of the FBI National Academy are now in 
every state in the United States, the Panama Canal Zone, 
Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico. In addition the Academy 
has opened its doors to representatives from numerous 
foreign countries. These include Canada, China, England, 
Mexico and Newfoundland.

Fresno and Its Police Department 



The City of Fresno first got on the map of the State 
of California as something more than a wide place in 
the rough road that meandered down through the San 
Joaquin Valley, back in 1872. It struggled along until 




Chief Raymond T. Wallace 

the town was incorporated in 1885 with a population of 
3000 within its 2.87 square miles of area. 

But since that date of incorporation Fresno has grown 
not only in importance to the state economic production 
— but in population and area. Now the estimated popu- 
lation is 90,000, the city limits is some 12 miles square. 
There are in addition some 30,000 more suburban residents 
who pour into the city. 

From the date it became an incorporated community 
Fresno had an undermanned Police Department, headed 
by a City Marshal. This title was given to the head of 
the Police Department for some 16 years. Then the title 
was changed to Chief of Police. 

During its 75 years history the Police Department of 
Fresno has had plenty of problems to contend with. In 
its earlier days with the town growing, with people con- 
verging on the thriving little town, there came many who 
sought not to make a living by tilling the soil, raising 
cattle or engaging in industry or business. These included 
the gamblers, the shady women and their retinue of male 
parasite followers who lived off their earnings. It kept 
the police busy to control these forms of vice, but as the 
years passed Fresno has for a long time put out of business 
organized gambling and prostitution. 

Particularly since the city went under a charter form 
of government in 1920, has this fact become well recog- 
nized. True, now and then under some administrations 
these evil influences reared their heads and tried to open 
up the town, but in the end they lost out. For nowhere 



will you find a more law abiding class of people than 
those who make up the population of Fresno. These 
people differ from those of many other cities of this 
state. They brag of no millionaires — they are satisfied 
with a class of people who are engaged in making a living, 
whether they be a producer or a worker, and who are 
ever contributing to the welfare of their fellow man, and 
giving much thought, effort and support to a well ad- 
ministered government. 

Since September 9, 1911, there have been ten Chiefs of 
Police. Following is a list of names of those who have 
led the Police Department from that date to the pres- 
ent time: 

Edward Jones, Thomas Coyle, John Gochring, Frank 
P. Truax (he served two terms), J. L. Broad, Jackson 
Liberad, William G. Walker and Raymond Wallace, the 
present Chief. 

With over eight years as Chief, Raymond Wallace 
exceeded all his predecessors named above in continuous 
length of service as head of the Police Department. 

It is easily understood why he should enjoy this dis- 
tinction. He has brought Fresno through the war years 
with a most enviable reputation for law enforcement.

Ass't. ChieF A. E. (Bert) Chapin, Fresno P. D. 



Back before March, 19H, A. E. Chapin, known as 
Bert to his legion of friends, had been driving an automo- 
bile stage for the Pioneer Stage Co., out of Fresno for 
years. He lived next to a member of the Fresno Police 
Department, and the two were fast friends. On the last 




Assistant Chief A. E. Chapin 

d.iy of February that year Stage Driver Chapin was called 
by his policeman neighbor. The latter told the stage 
dnver that the Police Department was up against it for 
some one who knew how to handle an automobile. Seems 
like a driver of the newly purchased gasoline driven patrol 
wagon had come up missing. Would Bert step in and 
help out until they got some one else who could handle 
the job. 

Bert Chapin liked his police officer friend and he has 
always leaned to the theory that you never make any 
mistakes by helping out anyone in trouble. He said he 
would take over. The neighboring policeman advised the 
then Chief of Police, Thomas Doyle, and the latter got 
in touch with Chapin telling him to show up the morning 
of March 1, 1915. 

Taking over the piloting of the custom built patrol 
wagon, designed to handle sixteen passengers, and with 
the idea of staying just a few days, he found he had got 
himself a job that has kept him in the Fresno Police De- 
partment ever since, over 32 years. 

Since that day he took over what was to be a temporary 
job, Officer Chapin has risen high in the ranks of the 
Police Department, for today he is Assistant Chief of 
Police, the next top man to Chief Raymond T. Wallace. 
He has held this rank as a permanent once since 1940, 
getting this tenure after serving a year as on a tempo- 
rary basis. 

Assistant Chief Chapin has seen many changes in Fresno 
since he pinned a star on his chest, and he has seen many 



changes in the city's Police Department, changes that 
makes it second to none in any city in the nation of 
like size. 

There is no man in the Department who is more familiar 
with the history of its organization, for as he progressed 
through the ranks to corporal to sergeant and to lieutenant 
a position he held for 14 years before being elevated to 
his present rank, he has studied continually the trend of 
the times, and has in his quiet way contributed many 
suggestions for law enforcement to meet the changing 
trends. He knows the county where he has lived since 
1903, and he knows the people who contribute to its 
prosperity, and he is able to sport a worthwhile new 
comer and he knows the bad ones at sight. 

His is the task of giving the final okeh to young men 
who enter the Police Department for he is in charge of 
personnel as well as keeping tab of the records of the 
Department. 

You don't have to wait for any information you seek 
that comes from his department while he fumbles through 
the files. He has them all systematically arranged and 
can dig up any thing desired by going directly to a 
certain cabinet and hitting the right folder the first pass 
he makes. He comes up with all the data desired, and 
quickly. 

It's a far cry to the day, over 32 years ago, when he 
donned his police uniform. Then the boys worked 10 
hours a day and got two days off a month and the pay 
was much less than the police officers now get for their 
forty-hour week.

Fresno County Peace Officers^ Association 



Throughout the State of CaHfornia there are numerous 
Peace Officers Associations, the members of whom have 
joined in organizing law enforcement officers in particular 
districts for the purpose of exchanging ideas, formulating 
plans to meet any great emergency, and at the same time 




Deputy Sheriff Joseph C. Pieretti 
President Fresno Association 

bring into action all officers of the law in any cnmuial 
activity, large or small. 

These associations for the most part meet monthly and 
they have done a vast good, not only with coping with 
crime, but sponsoring training courses, working for better 
working conditions and better wages for the men who 
perform the hazardous work of preserving the peace. 
They all look to the State Peace Officers Association of 
the State of California for guidance and they are an 
important factor in shaping the program of this great 
statewide peace officers organization. 

Down in Fresno County there is a Peace Officers' 
Association that in its 1 1 years of existence has become 
one of the best such associations in the West. 

It was back on April 2 3, 1936 when the Fresno County 
Peace Officers' Association was organized through the 
foresightedness and energy of Chief Raymond T. Wallace, 
who at that time was a Lieutenant in the Fresno Police 
Department. 

At that first meeting Chief Wallace was elected presi- 
dent, Sheriff George Overholt, vice president; Anna Louise 
Aynesworth, of the District Attorney's office, secretary, 
and Deputy, now District Attorney James M. Thuesen, 
treasurer. 

In setting forth its purposes it covered a wide scope of 
principles. We will quote these principles : 

"To secure a closer official and personal relationship 
among the peace officers of Fresno County; to secure 
co-operation and co-ordination in all police matters; to 
elevate the standards of Police istitutions; to provide 
full tenure .of office for those employed in the service ; to 
co-operate with all persons chargeable with the enforce- 



ment of the law, and for the prevention and detection 
of crime and the identification and treatment of prisoners." 

The association has religiously lived up to those prin- 
ciples. 

The founders of the Fresno County Peace Officers' 




Miss Helen Stephanish

Association went further than most peace officer organ- 
izations in their list of those pubHc officials who might 
be members.

Administrative School for Police Executives 



An administrative school for police executives, under the 
sponsorship of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, was 
held in the main auditorium of the University of San Fran- 
cisco on April 14th and Hth. 

The school was conducted hy Harry Kimball, Special 
Agent in Charge, San Francisco Field Office of the Federal 
Bureau of Investigation, assisted by Inspector Myron Gur- 
nea of the Federal Bureau of Investigation who acted as 
lecturer and handled questions from the floor. 

Of the one hundred and twenty-five members of the 
school twenty-eight were members of the San Francisco 
Police Department. Sheriffs and police heads were also 
present, representing fifty-eight police or sheriffs' units in 
the San Francisco Bay Counties' area. 

The trend of the course was to have sheriffs and police 
heads endeavor to see their law enforcement efforts as the 
present day public sees them, this, with a view to making 
the changes necessary in their modus operandi to obviate 
deserved criticism by the press or the public. 

In addition to showing the absolute of up-to-date police 
administrations as a prime factor in the matter of public 
relations, the following topics were covered in Inspector 
Gurnea's lectures and were discussed from the floor: Re- 
cruits, reports, responsibility, records, loyalty, statements, 
supervision, "specialization," interviews, examinations for 
promotion, annual inspection, personnel individual files, 
authority, advice and the "case" system also "moot court." 

Inspector Gurnea, in discussing various phases of police 
administration, told, in detail, how the Federal Bureau of 
Investigation handles parallel problems, such as the selec- 
tion and training of recruits, the training of employees, the 
personnel files, and the matter of promotions within the 
Bureau. 

An outstanding feature of the conferences was the fact 
peace officers of necessity must take cognizance of the trend 
towards amending laws that peace officers have to enforce; 
that it is incumbent on peace officers to actually formulate 
necessary penal law and traffic law amendments instead of 
anually trying to obviate the passage of amendments pro- 
posed by crackpots or by groups or individuals with an axe 
to grind. 

When the question of traffic law amendments was under 
discussion Deputy Chief Michael Riordan of San Fran- 
cisco told, in detail, how the State of California Traffic 
Code is amended annually by people who have no connec- 
tion whatever with peace officers' associations. Chief Rior- 
dan stressed the fact, that, inasmuch as sheriffs and chiefs 
of police have the duty of enforcing laws made at Sacra- 
mento they should also have a say in any changed specifica- 
tions of these laws, whether they be penal or traffic. 

It seemed to be the belief of the conference members 
that a small permanent group of representatives of both 
sheriffs and police departments be maintained for the sole 
purpose of proposing new and necessary amendments to 
the penal and traffic codes, instead of the present system 
of having to annually offset the amendments proposed by 



outstandingly apparent crackpots or definitely interested 
parties. 

On the second day of the conference a panel was formed 
for the definite purpose of discussing the best method of 
handling the manpower of the sheriffs' and police chiefs' 
units represented at the conference. 

The panel was composed as follows: Charles W. DuUea, 
of the San Francisco Police Department, as chairman, with 
the following members as regular members of the panel: 
Frank Cox, Sheriff, Sacramento County; Jack Gleason, 
Sheriff, Alameda County; Andrew Ford, District In- 
spector, State Highway Patrol; John Holstrom, Chief of 
Police, Berkeley; and Melvin Flohr, Chief of Police, Santa 
Rosa. 

Members of the panel spoke in detail of the various 
methods of disciplining members of their respective sheriffs' 
or police units. Applying discipline is apparently the out- 
standing problem in the matter of maintaining efficiency; 
also it is or it eventually becomes a safety valve in the 
matter of maintaining healthy police routine. 

The panel members were not at all in accord in the 
matter of applied discipline, some being for warning an 
offender one, or two or more times before taking drastic 
action; others for keeping a written record of infractions 
by the offender, and, as a result, asking for his resignation. 

The matter of disciplining peace officers, as a result of

Sheriff Stocker^ San Bernardino County 



San Bernardino County has a new Sheriff. He is James 
W. Stocker, who has plenty of experience in law enforce- 
ment, and who left that vocation to take up cattle raising, 
in which he has been most successful. 

Sheriff Stocker was elected last November after a 




Sheriff James W. Stocker 
of San Bernardino County 

hard-fought campaign when he bested Sheriff Emmet 
Shay of a long family dynasty of law enforcement in 
the city and county of San Bernardino. He now is chief 
law enforcement officer in the largest county in these 
United States, with the exception of a little known 
Texas county. 

Covering an area of 20,055 square miles San Ber- 
nardino county presents a varied topography. Within 
the borders of the county are some of the highest moun- 
tains of the coast range and the lowest point on the 
continent. Death Valley, which is 276 6/10 feet below 
sea level. Two great deserts the Mojave and the Colorado 
have the major portion of their arid areas within the 
confines of the county. 

Over a quarter of a million people live in this vast 
territory 

Through San Bernardino is shipped most of the oranges 
raised in this state, and from the growing of oranges and 
other citrus fruits, the lines of human endeavor include 
most everything up to mining. Gold, silver, copper, quick 
silver, cement, tungsten, limes and many other minerals are 
found in the mountains and deserts. 

Beside citrus fruits, deciduous fruits have a high place 
in the production of the county. The largest grape vine- 
yard is located in the San Bernardino Valley. Grain 
and alfalfa play a major part in the produce of the county. 

San Bernardino is the second largest division point on 
the Santa Fe Railway Company lines. The Union Pacific 
passes through the county as does the Southern Pacific. 



As the passengers over these three transcontinental 
railroads enter the San Bernardino Valley they get their 
first verdant view after crossing the deserts from their 
eastern homes. 

The mountains of San Bernardino have become the 
playground of Southern California, and good roads take 
the people to well located and well managed resorts. 

To police this domain, most of which is unincorporated, 
calls for a man who is familiar with the various types of 
people and is likewise familiar with the desert, the moun- 
tains and the rich farming valley. 

It is an almost impossible job for a Johnny-come-lately, 
and one of the reasons that San Bernardino has enjoyed 
a fine reputation for law enforcement is that all its 
sheriffs have been natives of the county, and knew the 
people and the county. 

In Sheriff Stocker the county has another native of 
that vast empire. He was born in Redlands, the famed I 
orange growing little city at the southeastern end of the 
valley, with its fine homes, unexcelled view and the 
famous Smiley Heights. He saw the light of day in 1895. 

After following cattle raising he entered law enforce- 
ment work as a deputy sheriff under Sheriff Ernest Shay,^ 
who succeeded Sheriff Walter Shay, who died after estab- 
lishing as fine a record as a peace officer as any man in i 
this county. (Continued on page 24)

The Candid Friend Says 

By Opie L. Warner 



Most men can stand poverty and adversity 
But few men can stand prosperity and power. 

I understand we arc getting quite a numerical increase 
in our Police Department here in San Francisco, and, 
looking on our local police as my friends, I would say 
to these young police officers, individually and collectively: 
Beware of stressing your (legal) power. 

Money is the root of all evil. This is quite a common 
statement. To my mind — and history bears me out — 
power is the root of all evil. But someone will say: Money 
is power — so there. 

The atomic bomb, dynamite, common blasting powder 
and high electric voltage are typical power agencies which 
man's ingenuity has produced; but, they can also be 
virtual Satanic instruments — and used to startingly demon- 
strate man's inhumanity to man. 

From the dawn of history humans in power have done 
inhuman things in proportion to their individual whims. 

Power is a dangerous possession. It seems to have it 
thrust suddenly upon the average person causes a right 
about face in his particular personality. In other words, 
power is like rich food — only a very few can digest and 
assimilate it. 

A young man who was an ordinary citizen a day, a 
month or a year ago, becomes a ranking member of the 
Army, Navy, Coast Guard — or even becomes sworn in 
as a police officer. What do we find? We find in all too 
many instances, a changed young man. We will take the 
young police officer. He has certain p>owers thrust upon 
him. He can lawfully carr^- a revolver, a club, and hand- 
cuffs, too. He also has the power to arrest people — even 
on suspicion of being felons. 

For some young men this power is too heavy a load 
of responsibility to carry, and, at the same time, to keep 
an even keel, in the matter of prudence. 

Years of experience have shown us that the first evi- 
dence of undigested power in a new officer's system is 
his use of the expression: "I will lock you up." 

He feels his new-found power; and, feeling it, he will 
roughly deprive a fellow citizen of that grand thing we 
call freedom; and, in doing so, will satisfy his ego of 
new found power. 

No doubt he will later regret his youthful haste and, 
in a year or two, become a normal user of his police power. 
But statistics do not generally bear out this change from 
abnormal to normal use of power — in any line of endeavor. 

Nature is very sparing of unusual specimens, even 
among humans; and of the incredibly few properly so- 
called naturally safe and sane bosses, she is parsimonious 
indeed. 

We have known bosses who have made a right about 
face in the matter of arbitrary power and who thusly 
became both successful and popular. But, on investigation, 
we have found that their previous record showed they 
had been known as "good heads" — hence their switch to 
normality was not at all an about face. 



In the history of our great United States — the vaunted 
Cradle of Liberty — we read, with disgust, of man's in- 
humanity to man, both on the mainland and on merchant 
ships flying the stars and stripes. Plantation owners who 
so willed could carry their power to shocking limits; and 
an unlettered captain of a merchant sailing ship from 
the New England coast could flog and taunt a fellow 
citizen sailor to death or to suicide to gratify his inhuman 
yen to use his power. 

Down through the ages the world has suff^ered from 
famine, fire and sword through wanton misuse of power. 

Even today, with all our boasted civilization and general 
education, millions are vainly groaning under the un- 
bearable conditions forced upon them through power 
inhumanely used. 

As a class, police officers in the performance of their 
duties as traffic control officers, and in the service of 
warrants of arrest, et cetera, are not envoys of good 
cheer — and hence are not overly welcome to the ordinary 
citizen. A young officer must bear in mind that, to the 
ordinary citizen, he is, at best, just a necessary evil. If 
he is thoroughly alive to this fact, he will, under no cir- 
cumstances, add fuel to this ever present fire by even 
slightly flaunting his police authority. 

A good police officer is — like an unusually powerful 
athlete — unassuming in his attitude towards even the 
most annoying individuals, thoroughly realizing he has 
the power necessary to perform the present police task 
in which he is engaged. 

Of my personal knowledge of the San Francisco Police 
for many years I know of the daily affronts offered them, 
even by people who are not under the influence. A busi- 
ness man, a professional man, a salesman or people gen- 
erally who have to deal with the public would not dream 
of taking, without retaliation, what our City's Finest 
daily listen to in dignified silence — very frequently en- 
hanced by a smile.

BAY COUNTIES' 



Peace Officers' Association 



MEETINGS EVERY MONTH 



Chief Melvin Flohr, President 



Captain BERN,yu> McDonald, Secretary-Treasurer 



The Bay Counties Peace Officers Association held its 
Spring meeting on April 10. It was held at the Alameda 
Prison Farm, which Sheriff H. P. (Jack) Gleason recently 
took over from the Navy Department. This Prison Farm 
is of 100 acres of the famed Camp Shoemaker, the discip- 




Chief John B. Holstrom 
State's Choice for lACP Office 

linary post for the United States Navy during the late 
war. It is near the town of Pleasanton. 

Sheriff Gleason was the host of the meeting, and he 
and his assistants went all out to make the many peace 
officers of this area enjoy themselves. 

As the visitors arrived they were struck by the changes 
that have been made in turning this new project into a 
rehabilitation center. Already gardens have been planted 
and prisoners were preparing more of the fertile land for 
crops that will cut down the cost of maintainance. Many 
of the buildings, formerly unpainted have been given 
coats of white paint with green trimmings, and everything 
was becoming as neat as the proverbial pin. 

During the noon hour the prisoners were engaged in 
playing basket ball and other sports, while others were 
enjoying the fine sunshine under a shady spot. It was a 
very different picture from the lot they would be facing 
in a county jail, and if understanding and interest in the 
welfare of law breakers of the lesser brackets will bring 
many of the youths, who find themselves in custody out 
of their wayward ways then it is very patent that Sheriff 
Gleason has something that many another Sheriff would 
like to have. 

After looking over the plant the members and their 
guests gathered in the former navy officers' mess hall 



where a fine luncheon, with prime roast of beef, the main 
dish, was served. 

Some two hundred sat down for this meal which was 
well served by prisoners. The meal being prepared in the 
farm kitchen, under the direction of Chef Lex Jensen. 

Chief Melvin Flohr called the meeting to order, and 
expressed appreciation of being invited to hold this meeting 
at the Prison Farm. He called upon Sheriff Gleason to 
present his special list of members and guests from Ala- 
meda county. The Sheriff stated that he had received the 
greatest cooperation from the board of supervisors, and 
introduced the following four who were present: Geo. 
Jansen, Clifford Nixon, Chester Stanley and Thomas 
Coldecott. 

He also told of how Commander George Schruggs had 
given such unselfish help in bringing this experiment into 
being, and he said it only cost the county $1.00 a year 
to get the land and the buildings. 

He presented all the Chiefs of Police, many of his 
Deputies and a few other prominent citizens of the 
East Bay area. 

President Flohr took over and presented numerous guests 
in attendance. These included Sheriff Howard Hornbuckle 
of Santa Clara, elected last November as that county's 
chief enforcement officer; former Police Commissioners 
Ward Walkup and William Wobber, Joseph Murphy of 
the American Trust Company, Attorney William P. 
Golden, J. L. Creighton, chief special agent for the 
Standard Oil Company, Special Agent in Charge Harry 
M. Kimball, and his assistant Harry Van Pelt, Chief 
McKenna of the special agents of the Southern Pacific 
Railway Company, Chief Joseph O'Ferrall, and several 
others. 

Captain Bernard J. McDonald made a motion that 
former Chief James Drew of Oakland, and secretary of 
the State Peace Officers Association be voted a life mem-

Association. He pointed out that Chief Drew was the first 
Secretary of the Association, and is now indisposed. He 
had a special certificate of life membership prepared and 
it was unanimously voted that his motion be carried and 
Deputy Sheriff John A. Greening was given the honor of 
bestowing the life membership. 

Deputy Greening made a report on the communications 
bill in the state legislature. He said Senate Bill 908 was 
designed to form a Radio Communications Board to have 
supervision over the important increase of radio in law 
enforcement. He said there was some opposition to this

RIVERSIDE COUNTY'S SHERIFF RAYBURN 
AND HIS RESERVE AERO SQUADRON 



From Indio It Covers Vast Desert and Mountain Area 



Riverside County, noted for its citrus fruits, its mag- 
nolia tree lined boulevards, grains, alfalfa, cattle, deciduous 
fruits, and other produce, also has within its domain a large 
area of the southwestern corner of the Colorado desert, 
in which Indio with its great date orchards, Coachella 
famed for its grape fruit, and also oranges and lemons. 
Palm Springs famous for its great recreational attractions. 



Rayburn is the creation of a Flight Reserve. This flight 
reserve is located and works from Indio, the busy little 
desert metropolis which has many tropical fruits but its 
lead is its great date groves, from which more of this fruit 
is processed and packed than from any other section of 
this country. 

The squadron was organized in June, 1946, and is

A Brief History of the Imperial Valley 



The story of the Imperial Valley in Imperial County, 
California, is a tale of romance and high adventure second 
to nothing that may be told of any part of the entire 
United States! 

Nomadic Indians first roamed over the region which 
is generally below sea level. 

About fifty years after Columbus discovery of the 
western world adventurers and explorers began to pene- 
trate this valley. Some partly ascended the Colorado 
River in small boats. These men were followed by others 
usually in the interest of the Spanish Crown; Ulloa, sent 
by Cortez; de Ornate; and stijl others, who left no 
written record. Two centuries later the Mission Padres 
made their way through the Colorado Desert as the valley 
was then called. 

Captain de Anza, who was later to found San Francisco, 
traversed this arid valley in the seventeen-scventics; Lieut. 
R. W. H. Hardy, of the Royal British Navy, in the eady 
part of the Nineteenth Century, was probably the first 
English-speaking man to gaze upon the Colorado Desert. 
About 182^ trappers from the Middle West began to 
visit "Salton Sink" now called the "Salton Sea." Kit 
Carson came through at that period. 

There arc authorities who contend that the first actual 
discovery of gold in California was made in IS42 by a 
Mexican in eastern Imperial County, near the Colorado 
River, six or seven years before the discovery at Sutter's 
Mill which was to precipitate the gold rush of 1 849. 

Col. Philip Kearny made the famous march from Ft. 
Leavenworth, Kansas, through Imperial Valley with a 
troop of Cavalry in the fall of 1846 on his way to 
San Diego. 

Lieut. W. H. Emory, one of Kearny's staff, left an 
interesting description of the Colorado Desert of that 
day, and of the march of the cavalry through arid wastes 
and inhospitable mountains. 

The history of modern Imperial Valley begins in 1892 
when efforts were made to irrigate the land with water 
brought from the Colorado River. 

May 14, 1901, was an event of the greatest magnitude 
for the valley, on that day the irrigation of America's 
"Winter Garden" had begun by bringing water from the 
Colorado River via a canal constructed for fifty miles 
in Mexico. 

Settlers came in rapidly and commenced farming opera- 
tions. Cities and towns were established and grew 
up swiftly. 

"The Winning of Barbara Worth," Harold Bell 
Wright's epic novel of Imperial Valley pioneer life, tells 
a graphic story of this period of development. 

Within the next few years changes were made in the 
irrigation system and in the flood of 1905 disaster struck; 
homes and ranches were destroyed and not until February, 
1907, was the valley saved and the water controlled. 
Agriculture advanced by leaps and bounds. 



Today the Boulder Dam provides storage of water, for- 
ever safeguarding Imperial Valley against the danger of 
destructive springtime floods and likewise summer water 
shortages. 

Agriculture crops in the valley today, i.e., flax, sugar 
beets, melons, lettuce, tomatoes, etc., run into millions 
of dollars annually. This in addition to extensive sheep 
and cattle raising. 

The incomparable winter climate makes Imperial Valley, 
truly, "America's Winter Garden."

For high men gold medals will be awarded, and silver 
medals and bronze for those who place below the gold 
medal winners. Trophies will be given to all team winners 
and gold medals as well to high scoring individuals. 

It is expected the entrants for this Western States 
tournament will exceed those of any former matches. 

Dunng its three years' history the new San Francisco 
Police Pistol Range has grown in popularity with all 
those agencies who have to depend on the use of firearms 
in their various callings. 

Lavish praise has been given for the conduct of all 
contests, the arrangements for the shooters and the well- 
operated targets and fair scoring. 

With eight electrically controlled targets, public address 
and inter-communication system, control tower, firing pits, 
tunnels runways, a visitors" gallery and a well-arranged 
administration building, those who enter the coming tour- 
nament in June as well as all other shooting matches 
will find they have the best in a pistol range. 

During last year over 1 100 officers of the San Francisco 
Police Department qualified for the various classifications. 

Over 6500 civilians and police officers used the range 
for practice. Twelve N. R. A. tournaments with 89 
events taken part in by over 10,000 were held. 

A total of approximately 25,000 persons used the range 
for training practice and competition during 1946. 

Light refreshments and sandwiches will be served dur- 
ing the tournament at a nominal fee, so all one has to do 
is to bring his side arms — he can get ammunition for small 



cost — and take aim at the target he aspires to get a prize 
winning score. 

Range Master Dutil and his gang have left nothing 
undone to make the visiting competitors from outside our 
city, feel at home. 



INTERDEPARTMENTAL PISTOL 
MATCHES START APRIL 24 

On April 24, at 1 p. m., the annual Interdepartmental 
Pistol Matches for members of the San Francisco Police 
Department will start, and every three months the said 
members will gather at the S. F. P. D. Pistol Range on 
the shores of Lake Merced and strive for the annual high 
honors, in this, which has become a most popular tour- 
nament. 

There will be trophies for team winners and medals 
for members of winning teams as well as for individual 
high men in the six classifications that have been set up 
for the contestants. 

Every member of the Police Department is expected 
to enter and try to qualify. Last year the turnout was 
the largest ever experienced in the history of the Police 
Department, and the number of members who qualified 
was a large one, showing the results of the range and 
the opportunity it offers the men to improve in the use 
of small arms. 

The six classifications are master first class, master, 
expert, sharpshooter, marksman, first class, and marksman. 

Range Master Emil Dutil and his corps of assistants 
have everything arranged for the participants, and it is 
expected opening day will bring out a huge crowd of 
shooters and friends who want to see the tournament 
tret off to a swell start.

HIGHLIGHTS OF UNIFORM CRIME 
REPORTS OF 1946 

J. Edgar Hoover, Director of the FBI, directed atteri' 
tion to the following highlights of the Uniform Crime 
Reports Bulletin for 1946: 

More persons were arrested and fingerprinted in 1946 
than during any year in the past decade. The FBI re- 
ceived and recorded 645,431 arrest records last year. 

Arrests of women decreased 18.3% in 1946 as com- 
pared with 1945. A total of 68,742 women were arrested 
and fingerprinted, or 10.7% of the total number arrested. 

Arrests of males increased 25.4% over the previous 
year. 

For the first time since 1938 more persons aged 21 
were arrested than in any other age group, followed by 
the 22, 23, 24 and 20-year-olds. 

Arrests of girls under 21 years of age declined 33.1% 
compared with the preceding year but still exceeded by 
40% the prewar figures. 

In 1946 a total of 108,787 persons under 21 years of 
age, or 16.9%, were arrested. 

Fifty-four per cent of all persons arrested had previous 
arrest records. Among offenses revealing a high propor- 
tion of repeaters are the following: narcotics violations, 
77.6%; forgery and counterfeiting, 65,7%; embezzlement 
and fraud, 62.7%; robbery, 61%; burglary, 57.4%; lar- 



ceny, 54.9% ; rape, 44.8% ; and criminal homicide, 42.3%. 

Of the 645,431 persons arrested 478,211 were white; 
159,172, Negro; 5,700, Indian; 432, Chinese; 140, Jap- 
anese; and others totalled 1,776. 

Crimes in rural areas increased 14.1% in 1946 in com- 
parison with a 7.4% increase in urban communities. 

There was an overall increase of 7.6% in crime through- 
out the nation in 1946 over 1945. The increase in 1945 
was 12.3% over 1944. 

Auto thefts declined 4.8%' last year while all other 
more serious offenses increased as follows: murder, 23.3% ; 
manslaughter by negligence, 7.2%; rape, 5%; robbery, 
15.7%; aggravated assault, 12.9%; burglary, 11.3%; and 
larceny, 8.8%. 

The loot per crime also increased in 1946. Loot in 
robbery cases averaged $160 as against $147 in 1945, 
burglary $133 compared ot $118 in 1945, larceny $59 
as against $54 in 1945, while automobiles stolen average 
in value $638 as against $605 in 1945. 

Mr. Hoover attributes the increase in crime to numer- 
ous factors: 

There is evidence that old gangs are regrouping. 

While nearing normalcy the effects of a spirit of war- 
time abandon have not run their course. 

Law enforcement agencies still do not have adequate 
trained personnel. 

The juvenile delinquents of the war years are graduating 
from petty thieves to armed robbers and into the field 
of more serious crime. 

The gradual breakdown of the American home is be- 
ginning to be reflected in the national behavior pattern 
and is a real cause for alarm. 



TRAGIC TRAFFIC FIGURES 

Pointing to the sharp increase in fatal automobile ac- 
cidents since the end of wartime gasoline rationing, the 
New York Life Insurance Company, in its 102nd annual 
report, urges that "those who would protect themselves 
cannot do better than follow the advice of the taxi driver 
who said, "Always drive like everybody else was crazy.' " 

Unless present death rates are reduced, the report 
warns, authorities have estimated that the annual toll of 
victims may reach 44,000 in 1947 and 50,000 in 1950. 

The policyholders are reminded that twice as many 
Americans have been killed by automobiles in the past 25 
years as by all the wars in the nation's history. 



ARE YOU THE WHOLE TEAM? 

It's all very well to have courage and skill and 

fine to be counted a star; 
The single deed with its touch of thrill does not 

tell us the man you are; 
For there's no lone hand in this game we play, we 

must work to a bigger sceme; 
And what counts in your department today is how 

you support the team.

Law Enforcement of Imperial County 



Out in the Imperial Valley of the Colorado Desert at 
the southern most end of the State of California, there is 
need at all times for fearless, able and ambitious men for 
law enforcement work. The stream of automobiles, the 
lines of trucks that pass through this great fertile stretch 
of the west — bringing into California or returning visitors 
to their homes to the East — and the trucks carrying pro- 
duce of ever>' kind gives the great valley a population 
many times its permanent number. 

In these automotive vehicles plying to and from Cali- 
fornia there are bound to be some men — and a few of 
the gentler sex — who are not law abiding. There are 
some who are criminals from choice and who are always 
seeking to enrich their purses by thievery of various 
n\cans. There is also the problem of the migrant who 
comes into the valley to harvest the vast crops that mature 
earlier than anywhere else in this great west. These 
migrants are made up of different nationalities and because 
of their wanderlust they have not been schooled into the 
proper observance of the law of the land. They do not 
commit any major depredations, but they contribute, if 
not properly controlled, some misdemeanor infractions 
of the laws. 

The people who settled this area, which in less than a 
half century has developed into one of the agricultural 
wonders of the time, were of rugged stock, their sons 
and daughters have grown up in the same pattern, getting

a little more ptolish as their forebears prospered on the 
crops the rich, irrigated lands produced. 

There is nothing pastorial or rural as usually accepted 
in small communities in the main little cities of Imperial 
Valley. You will find imposing buildings, housing business 
concerns that meet the demands of people in the matter 
of food, dress, equipment of all kinds as well as for the 
luxury needs of those who want such articles. Ranches 
and farms are well kept, residential sections have at- 
tractive homes, from the vine covered cottage to more 
impressive domiciles. 

~~So these pioneers who have brought such wonderful 
changes in a wind swept desert have always demanded 
in the enforcement officers men who know the desert, its 
people and know the laws of the country and who will 
enforce them impartially, but surely. The history of the 
men who have headed the police department of En Centro, 
Brawley and Holtville, the main cities of the county, is a 
bright one for law enforcement of this state. 

Today each of these cities has a police department that 
will stack up favorably with any department in a city of 
similar size. The respective Police Departments are 
headed by sincere and competent men who are well aware 
of their responsibilities in preserving the peace. 

We present on the following pages accounts of the 
Chiefs and their personnel.

El Centro Police Department 



Ronnie R. Voyles is Chief of Police of El Centro, 
county seat of Imperial County. 

Chief Voyles took up law enforcement in 1922 when 
he was appointed undersherifF of Bryan County, Okla- 
homa. He held this responsible position for a number 
of years. 

He migrated to Imperial County in 1929, settling in 
El Centro and in 1930 joined that city's Police Depart- 
ment. He filled every post in the Department, built up 
a fine reputation as a police officer, and displayed rare 
ability to understand what a man must do to become 
efficient in law enforcement. 

In fact he became so popular with the people of his 
adopted city that in 1941 when a vacancy occurred in 
the office of Chief of Police he was promoted to the job. 
In March this year he has completed six years as the head 
of the Police Department. 

Due to the rapid growth of the city's population, during 
the war years, and which hasn't let up in the post war era, 
which is now around 1 1 ,000 people, and during the fruit 
and vegetable seasons several thousand more descend upon 
the city. Chief Voyles finds that his personnel of 16 
efficient and well schooled officers is scarcely enough to 
handle the police problems. These problems are ever- 
increasing in El Centro as is the case in other cities of 
like size throughout California and the other Western 
States. From El Centro many visitors to the town bypass 
to make the trip to Mexicali and Calexico for a look-see 
at our southern brothers of Mexico. 

During the last year there were 1206 felony and mis- 
demeanor arrests, and the number of calls answered by 
the 2-way equipped patrol cars crews totalled 14,107. 

It has been pointed out to this writer that a new city 
hall and jail are badly needed for El Centro, this need is 
second only to the imperative need of more police officers. 

Following is the membership of the Police Department 
of El Centro :

POLICE AND PEACE OFFICERS" JOURNAL 



Aprd, 1947 



SHERIFF STOCKER 

f Continued from page 1 0) 

After a year as general deputy he took over the position 
of chief criminal investigator which he held most ef- 
ficiently for three years, in fact he showed such a natural 
inclination for peace office work that he was made Under- 
sheriff, serving for eight years under Sheriff Emmet 
Shay, the man he defeated in the last election. 

In 1943 he quit his job and went up to Big Bear 
Valley to take charge of his cattle ranch which he has 
operated for many years. 

Sheriff Stocker was a sheriff's investigator when on 
April 26, 1934, Walter H. Wyeth and W. T. Stewart 
made their escape from San Quentin, and in a stolen car 
and two officers they kidnaped, succeeded in going down 
the valley route to San Bernardino. Here they made a 
very bad mistake in holding up a drug store operated 
by H. L. Perdew. They had let out of their car the two 
officers they had kidnaped in San Rafael, and about this 
time these two officers were in touch with the sheriff 
and police of San Bernardino. The hunt was on from 
there. The two escapees made for the Mojave desert, 
but they did not get very far, for they were spotted by 
Deputy Sheriff Stanley Snediger, who in a running gun 
battle shot to death both men. 

Former Deputy Snediger is now operating a race track 
in Phoenix, Arizona, and a big cattle ranch as well. 

Former Druggist Perdew is now a member of Sheriff 
Stocker's force of deputies. 

Sheriff Stocker's department has under its jurisdiction 
three radio stations, the main station being KSBC in the 
courthouse servicing 14 Police Departments and Fire De- 
partments of the valley. The main station handles 33 
2-way radio equipped automobiles for the Sheriff's office. 

There is a station at Needles. KMXN, the dispatchers 
being furnished by the Needles Police Department, and 
another one at Barstow, KSBB, the dispatchers being from 
the sheriff's office and one from the Highway Patrol. 

San Bernardino's Sheriff force now totals 93 regularly 
paid officers. There are nine substations, each in charge 
of a Captain. 

Four dispatchers are employed at the main office. 

Harry Heap is Undersheriff; Percy H. Green, Chief 
Criminal Deputy; Ernest Grimes, Chief Jailer; W. T. 
Russell, Superintendent of the Bureau of Identification; 
Ray Deakins, Chief Civil Deputy; R. Carl Anderson, 
Chief Radio and Communication Engineer; Mark Beach 
is Assistant Engineer, and Larry Perdew is Chief Radio 
Dispatcher. 

Sheriff Stocker is a firm believer of close cooperation 
with all peace officers. He is a member of the State 
Peace Officers' Association and of the State Sheriff's 
Association. 

The vast San Bernardino county area brings up many 
criminal cases that make the front pages of the state's 
newspapers. But the people of this varied and fertile 



county can rest assured that under their new Sheriff they 
will have the same law enforcement that has endured for 
nearly a century and which has always been noted for 
solving crimes and keeping criminals on the lam. San 
Bernardino county has year in and year out contributed 
a sizeable list of law breakers to San Quentin and Folsom 
state prisons and other institutions of security. Recorded 
testimony of the efficiency of the men who have the ex- 
acting work of enforcing the laws of the land. 

Sheriff Stocker is married, having been wedded to Vera 
McPherson of Glendale on August 15, 1922. The couple 
have three children, Sarah Margaret, a graduate from 
Stanford University; Helen Vera still in college and James 
W., in grade school.

Brawley and Its Police Department 



Brawley is the largest city in the Imperial Valley. It 
has a fixed population of over 15,000. When crops are 
being harvested many thousands pour into the bustling 
little city from the surrounding fields and orchards. 

The head of the Police Department is J. H. Gabard. 




Chief J. H Gabard 

Chief Gabard was horn in North Carolina on Sep- 
tember 14, 1896. While quite a lad he decided to leave 
the Sunny South and went to Iowa, where he met a 
young girl whom he later married. He did not like the 
climate of Iowa so in 1919 he made up his mind to head 
for the land of Sunshine, oranges and movie stars. He 
got as far as Brawley on his westward trek and said here 
is the place I've been looking for. True, Brawley of the 
early '20's didn't have much of a population, though it 
had long grown out of the experimental stage as far as 
farming was concerned. 

Mr. Gabard could see the future held great promise 
for the Imperial Valley, and particularly for Brawley. 
He felt that the day would surely come when Brawley 
would be one of the outstanding communities of the 
area. So here he settled down and went about the busi- 
ness of earning a living. 

He did well for himself, and established himself with 
the people of the town. He finally turned to law enforce- 
ment work and in 1932 he joined the Police Department 
of Brawley. The Chief of Police at that time was J. 
L. Cromer. 

A few years ago Chief Cromer retired after 16 years 
of faithful service. The powers that be selected Oflicer 
J. H. Gabard as his successor. 

They have found they made no mistake for Chief 
Gabard has served with distinction and efficiency since 
his appointment to the high office. If the people of 
Brawley have anything to say about the selection of its 
chief enforcement officer Chief Gabard will head his 



small but competent force of peace officers for some 
time to come. 

Brawley, with its population of some H,000 is much 
larger than pre-war days. For instance the city jail was 
built many years ago to accommodate 25 prisoners. Today 
it has to handle three or four times that number. Like 
other small cities on this coast, Brawley is faced with the 
need for more space to care for the ever-increasing num- 
ber of law breakers that marks increase in population. 
These farming communities that produce fruits, vege- 
tables, grains, cattle, sheep, hogs, and other products to 
meet the demands of the American people for their 
necessities of life are the backbone of this country. Braw- 
ley as an example of its productiveness of the surrounding 
country is noted for its barley, wheat, flax, alfalfa, canta- 
loupes, melons, carrots, lettuce, fruits, nuts and dairying.

Imperial County Sheriff Named Ass^n Head 



Robert W. Ware of En Centro, sheriff of Imperial 
County, was elected president of the California State 
Sheriffs' Association at the closing of the fifty-third annual 
convention, held in the Hotel Sacramento on March 14. 

H. P. Gleason of Oakland, sheriff of Alameda County, 
was elected vice president; A. C. Jewell of Los Angeles, 
undersheriff of Los Angeles County, was reelected secre- 
tary-treasurer; Leon Palmer of Oakland, chief civil deputy 
sheriff of Alameda County, was named assistant secretary, 
and John Loustalot of Bakersfield, Kern County sheriff, 
was named sergeant at arms. 

Santa Barbara was selected as the site of the 1948 
convention. 

The association favors amendments to AB 601, which 
the sheriffs oppose in its present form, "so as to provide 
for the proper financing of any recommended changes in 
the structure or standards for maintaining or keeping 
prisoners." The bill's objective is a higher level of ad- 
ministration, standards of construction and the care of 
prisoners.

The group also are opposed to certain provisions in AB 
388, relating to the discipline of prisoners, although they 
"approve in principle the prevention of kangaroo courts 
and sanitary committees in county or other jails." 

The delegates adopted a resolution commending As-

Assemblyman Randal Dickey, Alameda County, for their 
"invaluable service to the association in furthering its

Holtville, Imperial Co., Has Small Police Dept. 



Holtville, Imperial County, which isn't so very far 
from Brawley, is a town of some 3500 people, who have 
their homes there. During the harvesting seasons this 
number is increased by from 1500 to 2000 farm workers. 
But while Holtville is smaller than the county seat and 
Brawley it yields nothing in the way of modern up'to- 
dateness in its homes, business and low enforcement. 

It contributes its share to the various crops that have 




CiiiKF Lr.ii Balmann, Holtuille 

made the Imperud Valley famed throughout the nation. 

Lee Baumann is Chief of Police of Holtville and he 
has a force of four men to keep the peace of the little 
city. They do a gixid job. They are ; 

Officer Hugh Simpson. 

Officer S. D. Davis. 

Officer Taft Strikland. 

Officer Perry Lay. 

Chief Baumann was born in San Angelo, Tom Green 
county, Texas. His birthdatc was August 3, 1899. He 
followed the cattle business for many years of his life 
and finally settled in Brawley. 

A little less than three years ago he joined the Police 
Department and 28 months ago was appointed Chief. 

There are no major crimes in Holtville. the police being

demeanors and from trouble that now and then appears 
among the migrants who come each season to gather in 
the crops. The Police Department handles all these cases 
with dispatch and they have the respect of all law abiding 
citizens of the community. 

Chief Baumann has a son who served three and one-half 
years in the Army Air Service. He was overseas for 18 
months and made sixty-five missions as a tail gunner on a 
B-26 Marauder.

Traffic Cops — Encyclopedias, Information Bureaus, or What? 



ByT 



Every omc I see a copy of the RiJes and Regulaticms 
of die Police £>epaitment I appreciate die value of my 
personal freedom as an ordinary civilian taLspayer. 

I always did appreciate die fact that trafic <Acers 
wete hterally "on the spot," rain or shine, during their 
eight-hour vratches. 

Of course, I did not envy those day-in and day-out 
protectMS of the life, limb and property of our ttfmin g 
citizenry; but I always have been an ardent traffic officer 
fan — ^and I feel I have thousands of fellow fans right 
here in San Francisco. 

Being on very friendly terms with the Traffic Bureau 
staff is occurred to me to ask one of our fixed-poet duty 
men how he was able to hve up to the terms of Rule 
number two hundred and ten of the Rules and Regula- 
tions in regard to "unnecessary conversation." 

He laughed heartily and tcM me the "unnecessary" 
part of the conversations was not at all on his side — 
that such daily ""conversations" w^cre more or less of a 
pain in the neck to him. 

This particular traffic officer has a good disposition 
and enjoys beii^, in the eyes of the pubUc, an encyclopedia 
and an information bureau for eight hours per day — 
rainy days excepted. 

At my request my good friend gladly agreed to keep 
track of the next day's "uiuiecessary conversation," and 
was just as astonished as I was, when, next evening, I 
jotted down his "conversation" wt»k c» Market Street, 
San Francisco, during his tour of duty. 

People are funny — die grown up ones more so than 
the children, the tourists being tops in inanity, acoxding 
to mv traffic officer friend. 



Just imagine this half a dozen questions in a day at 
fixed traffic post: Are you a cop? Have you local traffic 
laws? Were you bom in San Francisco? Is there an 
insane asylum in San Francisco? Were you ever in Los 
Angeles? Is it always cold and windy like this in San 
Francisco? How large is Oakland? Are there ratde snakes 
in the Zoo? Is standing here all day the only police 
duly you have to do? 

The above "making conversatian" questioDs were over 
and above the usual run of the mill queries about street 
car runs, hotels, streets, office buildings, and a good plaoe 
to get a drink — not fwgetting that standard query vcfaich 
proves diat some tax-burdened citizens still feel the urge 
of the milk of human kindness: "Will you have a 
drink, officer?" 

In a future edition I wiU set forth a list of the pceers 
that our good traffic officers have daily thrown at them 
by leisurely people who have plenty of time spend and 
nothing to do but let the golden hours go by.

COMMENDATIONS BY S. F. P. D. CAPTAINS 



The following are copies of reports submitted to Chief 
Charles W. DuUea by Company Commanders. The of' 
ficers concerned have been personally commended by 
their respective Captains for the fine police services ren- 
dered, as outlined in these resports: 

"On Tuesday, January 7, 1947, Officers Robert Crowley 
and Frank Fitzpatrick arrested James Leroy Williams, 
who with others is wanted for a number of armed rob- 
beries in this city, Los Angeles, Fresno and Merced. 
Williams is a dangerous gunman and the termination of 
his criminal career by Officers Crowley and Fitzpatrick 
is a real public service. I respectfully suggest that they 
be commended by you in orders. 

George M. He.^ly, 
Captain of Police, Co. E." 

"At 12:05 A. M., Sunday, January 19, 1947, while 
Officers George Hoover and Harry Mallett were on 
patrol, they observed two white sailors, barefooted, chas- 
ing a colored civilian west on OTarrell Street and north 
on Buchanan Street. They immediately joined in the 
chase and apprehended the suspect. John E. Lawson. It 
Vvfas then learned from the sailors that they had been 
robbed in an alleyway between 1455 and 1457 OTarrell 
Street by the suspect and two other colored men who had 
escaped east on OTarrell Street. As the suspect was ap- 
prehended, he dropped a white metal cigarette lighter 
Vv^hich was identified by John Logan as his property. Both 
sailors identified the suspect as the man who had forced 
them to remove their coats and shoes looking for money. 
Tlieir shoes and coats were recovered in the alleyway 
where the robbery took place. The suspect was booked 
for Violating Section 211 of the Penal Code and En 
Route to Sacramento and the cigarette lighter booked as 
evidence. This fine arrest was made as a result of alert- 
ness on the part of the arresting officers and I therefore 
respectfully suggest that they be commended by you 

.n orders. „ -u- n 

George M. Healy, 

Captain of Police, Co. E." 

"I wish to call to your attention the excellent police 
service rendered by officers of this company in connection 
with the arrests of two juveniles, Melvin H. Burtis, age 14 
and Sidney Anderson, age 17, wanted by this department 
in connection with several auto thefts and possible impli- 
cation in other crimes. At 7 p. m., Sunday, January 12, 
1947, Sidney Anderson appeared in the Richmond Station 
statin" that he had been informed that officers were look- 
ing for him. Anderson had previously been reported as 
missing by his mother. Questioning of Anderson by Ser- 
Pteant Carl Bruhn elicited the information that Melvin 
Burtis, a friend of Anderson, had stolen an automobile 
from Arguello Blvd.. on Thursday, January 9, 1947. 
Officer George Gamble, Co. G., in company with Ser- 
geant Bruhn, made a search of this district and on Anza 
Street, near Ninth Avenue, observed the automobile in 



question, unoccupied, parked at the curb. The original 
license plate had been replaced with another stolen plate. 
Officer Gamble, changing to civilian dress, was immedi- 
ately detailed to the vicinity, and a short time later, ob- 
served two youths cross the street and enter the auto. 
He immediately placed Burtis, the driver, under arrest; 
the other youth, following investigation, was found to 
be innocent of any complicity. At the time of the arrest, 
Officer Gamble took from the person of Burtis, a .32 
caliber automatic revolver, with two shells in the clip. 
Subsequent questioning of Burtis at this station by Lieu- 
tenant Coombs and Sergeant Bruhn established his im-

Anderson was implicated in several of these crimes. In 
addition to the recovered auto, a valuable outboard motor, 
which was taken in a previous theft, was recovered. I 
respectfully submit that the foregoing arrests involved 
elements of alertness and intelligence, and recommend that 
the olficers involved be commended by you in special

"Recommendation for Captain's Commendation, Of- 
ficers of Co. 'C Potrero Station, re: Capture of Burglar 
at 1419 Egbert Street. With reference to the above 
subject matter, at about 3:20 a. m., Tuesday, January 21, 
1946, Officers James T. Kane, Star No. 1501 and George 
W. Steuben, Star No. 1562, of this command, while on 
patrol in Radio Car C-3 were making a routine check 
of doors and windows in their patrol area and while so 
doing on the premises at 1419 Egbert Street, the Para- 
disc Cafe and Restaurant, heard a suspicious noise from 
within the building. Finding the front door and all the 
front windows secure, the ofiicers proceeded to an alley 
on the west side of the building where they found three 
windows unlocked. The ofiicers climbed through one of 
these windows and proceeded to make a thorough search 
of the premises, upon which they found that two "Juke" 
Boxes had been broken into, the coin boxes being missing 
from same, and a screw driver protruding from a cigarette 
vending machine near the lock. Searching further the 
ofiicers found the missing coin boxes at the end of the 
bar and also various other items of evidence about the 
premises. Continuing the search the ofiicers found one 
Samuel Brown, colored, hiding under an icebox in the 
bar. Sammie Brown had on his person at this time a 
cloth glove, which he was wearing on his left hand, and 
a claw hammer in his right rear pocket. Upon being 
placed in custody Sammie Brown admitted to a long 
police record, stating that he had been jailed in every 
town in which he had ever been in. The proprietress of 
the premises, Helen Purify, was notified and responded 
and secured the premises. She stated that she had em- 
ployed Sammie Brown to do some repair work on the 
premises several weeks ago. In view of the above circum- 
stances, I recommend that Ofiicers Kane and Steuben 
receive Captains Commendation for their alertness, initia- 
tive, intelligence displayed and singular devotion to duty 
in affecting the arrest of the perpetrator of this offense; 
and that a copy of this communication be placed in their 
personal file at headquarters.

NORTHERN CALIFORNIA 

POLICE COMMUNICATION OFFICERS 

ASSOCIATION 

Merrill LeBouef, President 
A. R. Taggart, Secretary-Treasurer 



The regular monthly meeting of the Northern Cali- 
fornia Police Communication Officers' Association was 
held in Monterey, California, on February 13. Our host 
was Charles Simpson. 

The meeting was opened by Vice President George 
Burton. 

President Merrill LeBouef arrived at this point and 
took over. 

Fred Deetken (General Electric) introduced our tech- 
nical speaker for this meeting, Frank Barnes, engineer 
for the General Electric Company who gave an excellent 
talk on Frequency Modulation. 

Meeting recessed for lunch, which was held at the 
Venetian Club. 

On resumption of the meeting. Bill Whiting, president 
of the California Police Radio Association, Pete Kriedler, 
C. H. P., Bob Fox, Bakersfield Police, and K. W. Zeigler, 
Pomona Police, all of Southern California, were intro- 
duced. Kriedler explained the new Point to Point network 
being installed in the South to relieve the medium fre- 
quency traffic load, pending a regular Statewide Point 
to Point Network. This will be A. M. equipment to keep 
expenses down. This will be a great help to the smaller 
communities operating on the ultra high frequencies. 

Bill Whiting reported on the various committees that 
are already working in preparation for the APCO Na- 
tional Conference to be held in Los Angeles in August. 
When the boys in the East see what is in store for them, 
they will never hold another Conference in the East. A 
joint meeting of the California Apco Chapters will be 
held in April in Reno, Nevada, at which time our Asso- 
ciation will determine what assistance we can render for 
the coming National Conference. 

Reports of Committees followed. 

Engineering and Frequency Committee: Humboldt 
County requested clearance for a change from 2422 KCS 
to 1610 KCS. Motion by Bud Hossack, seconded by 
George Maxie. 

The California Highway Patrol: Request change from 
1682 KCS to 1960 KCS, for the following stations in 
Northern California. KSCY Yreka; KSPR Redding;

KAAS Sacramento; KADJ Sacramento; KRBU Bay 
Bridge; KRBU Emergency Bay Bridge. This change is 
requested to eliminate the present interference conditions 
existing on 1682 KCS. 

Motion by Jim Lewis, second by George Burton. 

Antioch Police Dept. : Request clearance for a ^0 watt 
A. M, Fixed Station to operate on 2422 KCS and a fre- 



quency of 30.98 mcs for five mobile units. Letters of

medium frequency were also submitted. 

Motion by Bud Hossack, second by Walt Keller. 

Healdsburg Police Dept.: Request clearance on 31.^ 
mcs. for the fixed station, and 37.22 mcs. for the mobiles.

of any co-ordinated communication system. Is contrary

by George Burton, that a letter from the Engineering and 
Frequency Committee stating the above facts to be sent

munication Board composed of six members. This bill

volved. Motion by Chas. Simpson that our Association

Second by Walt Keller. Unanimously approved by the

Washington on February Jrd., gave us a first hand report

POLICE AND PEACE OFFICERS' JOURNAL 



Albert E. Simmon, Chief of Police, 
Elsinore, Riverside County 



The city of Elsinore, in Riverside County, far famed 
as a health and pleasure resort town, nestles on the shores 
of scenic Lake Elsinore, Southern California's largest 
natural fresh water lake. 

It IS only 7^ miles southeast of Los Angeles, and 90 
miles northwest of San Diego. It can be reached from 
the beaches of Southern California by 23 airline miles. 




CiiiEi- A. E. Simmon, E]sinore 

Elsinore is centrally located for health and pleasure 
seekers from the surrounding metropolitan areas. 

The population of the city is 2300, it is on the Santa Fe 
Railroad, and can be reached by automobile over U. S. 
Highway 395, Imperial Highway and Ortega Highway. 

These routes furnish much that pleases the eye as they 
pass through valleys and hills over well graded highways, 
with Mt. San Jacinto, which guards the eastern end of 
the valley in which Elsinore is located. San Jacinto is 
noted for its resorts and for the fact that it shoots up 
from the valleys that surround it at the highest elevation 
of any big mountain on this continent. 

The big attraction is of course Lake Elsinore. This 
body of fresh water is seven miles long and two miles 
wide. It is completely surrounded by mountains and the 
beauty of the lake is unsurpassed. 

It is ideally located and is available to some five million 
people living within a radius of one hundred miles, and 
many of this vast population annually take advantage of 
this easily accessible resort. 

There are a variety of sports enjoyed on the lake, they 
include bathing, speed boat racing, sail boating, aqua- 
planing and fishing. 

A lot of people pass through Elsinore, and a lot of 
people come to that picturesque lakeside city to enjoy its 
wonderful attractions, and to enjoy many recreational 
offerings. These people are for the most part law abiding, 
but you have to have a Police Department in any com- 
munity to see that no one gets out of line. 

Elsinore is a town of some 2000 population, and while 



it is more noted for its big lake and the scenic attractions 
of the surrounding country, it is also the central point 
for many farmers, cattle raisers and other products of the 
soil. It has no major crime problem because its small 
Police Department is able to keep an eye on any new 
comer who might try his hand at a little window lifting, 
porch climbing or stickup work. 

There is a traffic problem because of the great number 
of automobiles that pass through the little city, but this 
problem is well handled by the men charged with enforc- 
ing the law. 

The Police Department is headed by Chief Albert 
Simmon, he has three men under him, they being: 

Officer Sam Seed. 

Officer Arthur Barber. 

Officer Jay Coggins. 

Chief Simmon, who is 34 years of age is a well set up 
young man and is known to his close intimates as "Plucky." 

In 1940 he entered the Pasadena Police Department 
but when the war came along he joined up after a year

patrolling a beat. He served through four years of the 
war being in the Provost Marshal's office and held the 
rank of Sergeant. 

When he was mustered out of the service he took up 
law/ enforcement again, and shortly after there was a 
vacancy in the Elsinore Police Department for Chief. 
Albert E. Simmon qualified for the position and was ap' 
pointed. He immediately became popular with the resi- 
dents of Elsinore and has done a great job in keeping 
the peace of the own. 

Beside his regular men he has 12 special officers whose 
duties are to see that the visitors to scenic Elsinore are 
able to enjoy their stay without any molestation and look 
after the lake front where many people gather for boating, 
fishing, swimming and other aquatic sports. 

The Department has a patrol car equipped with two- 
way radio, serviced by the Riverside Sheriff Rayburn's 
shortwave station. A state connected teletype is also in- 
stalled in the police headquarters. 

There is a pistol range where every member charged 
with law enforcement of the city must take regular turns 
to qualify as handlers of side arms. 

Because all equipment is new and the members of the 
Police Department have mastered all the details of their 
operation the Department functions with the efficiency of 
those of much larger communities.

communicate with their assemblymen and senators asking 
that the bill be passed. And do it fast as it is due to 
come to a vote in a short time. 

He said another thing the Association members should 
show interest in was the U. S. Senate bill 32, which has 
to do with exempting pensions of law enforcement officers 
from income taxes. He said Senator Knowland was 
giving his attention to the bill. 

One of the most important matters brought up at the 
meeting was the selecting of a Pacific Coast Chief of 
Police as a nominee for a vice-presidency of the Interna- 
tional Association of Chiefs of Police. 

Deputy Greening in opening up the subject, said that 
there would be two vice-presidents elected at the coming 
meeting of the International Association, the second vice- 
president having been killed last year. That Chief Charles 
W. Dullea would this year be elected as president of the 
Association, and there would be no representative from 
this coast. He said there should be one to aim at the 
presidency and he stated he had in mind the man for that 
honorable position. He then put forth the name of Chief 
John B. Holstrom of Berkeley. 

He recounted how Chief Holstrom, when a young man, 
came to him from the University of California and asked 
about taking up law enforcement work. How he subse- 
quently took the examination for police officer and once 
started on this career he advanced rapidly to the high 
place he now occupies as Chief of Police of Berkeley, a 
position Chief Greening held so well for so many years. 

The motion was seconded by Chief Robert Tracy and 
was unanimously passed. 

In acknowledging the honor paid him. Chief Holstrom 
pointed out the high place Chief Dullea has won among 
peace officers of this nation, and how highly regarded he 
is in the International Association of Chiefs of Police, 
which organization he will head during the next year. He 
said he would endeavor to live up to the fine record of 
San Francisco's Chief. 

District Attorney Hoyt was the speaker of the day and 
he had an interesting resume of the legislation pending at 
the present session of the State Legislature. 

As head of the Legislative Committee of the State 
Peace Officers' Association, District Attorney Hoyt has 
kept a close watch of the many bills introduced in the 
state senate and assembly, and he gave his observations 
of those bills that were of benefit to peace officers and 
those that were detrimental. 

The following were elected to membership : 
Inspector Edward Parker of Berkeley; E. J. Smith of 
San Carlos; Sheriff Hornbuckle of San Jose; Dr. C. B. 
Fontaine of Alameda Sheriff's office; Lieutenant Woods of 
Redwood Police Department and C. R. Kindling. 

The meeting adjourned with Secretary Captain Mc- 
Donald being charged with getting the next meeting place 
for the Association.

RIVERSIDE SHERIFF'S AERO PATROL 

(Continued from page 1 6) 
faith in law and order and a deep seated belief that all 
law abiding people should help those charged with en- 
forcing the laws, was organized under the guidance of 
Sheriit Rayburn. They have been assigned territory to 
which they devoted their time to the protection of lives 
and property, and they have proven a potential aid 
against banditry, car thefts, kidnaping, and have proven 
invaluable in locating lost hunters, hikers, mountain 
climbers and others who lose their way in the lofty moun- 
tains, the deep canyons and the vast expanse of desert 
that surround Indio and other settled points on the Colo- 
rado desert. 

Many of the members of the squadron own their own 
planes and gives their time and talents without any com- 
pensation from the city of Indio or the county of River- 
side. In fact they meet the financial cost involved in 
maintaining this ultra modern step in law enforcement, 
and do it willingly, so deep is their belief in keeping out 
law breakers and assisting in other ways of maintain- 
ing peace. 

Some of the members, formerly in our air corps have 
no planes, but Indio Air Port Manager George Char- 
bonneau takes care of that. He furnishes any and all 
members who have no airships, planes at actual cost, both 
for flying and training. 

The Indio flight territory covers 2500 square miles, 
extending from Banning on the west to the desert center

and Salton Sea. The territory is divided into what is 
designated as grids, which are set forth on maps so that 
each pilot and observer scanning these maps knows ex- 
actly what part of the territory they have to cover. When 
out on duty they can, through two-way radio, give direc- 
tion to a ground crew. Thus can great assistance be given 
in the pursuit and capture of suspected criminals, or the 
rescue of some lost person. The speed this lends to a 
criminal chase or the locating of some wandering man 
or woman in off the beaten paths can readily be under- 
stood by those engaged in law enforcement. 

All men of the squadron are duly sworn in as Deputy 
Sheriffs, under Sheriff Rayburn, and they have set a 
record in their less than a year's history that gives great 
encouragement to the hope that other Sheriffs throughout 
the United States, in widely dispersed areas will be so 
fortunate as to have such a patriotic organization work- 
ing for them. 

To the law breakers who try their hand in the desert 
regions of Riverside county we can say, "Beware, the 
Sheriff's posse is over you." 

The members of the Indio Flight Squadron is made up 
of the following men : 

Don Green, former A. T. C, Pilot Huston Fisher, 
Frank Guitron, Merle Preston, Ray Bolton, John Caw- 
throne, Frank Tebo. Marshall Wright, Ray Smith, Dr. 
B. Gene Morris, flight surgeon; Argylc Watkens, Edward 
Kandarian, Glen Engle, Edward Holcomb, Dick Laird 
and Jock Moffett. As indicated above Air Port Manager 
Charbonneau, who gives this new formed peace officers 
detail top priority in assistance, advice and machines, is 
also a member of the squadron.

clerks, probation officers, court clerks, supervisors, treas- 
urers and deputies, fish and game wardens, city commis' 
sioners and deputies, and city councilmen, railroad police 
and city and county health officers and coroners and depu' 
ties are eligibles. These all have at some time a part in 
working out a criminal case. For instance the county 
treasurer is the only one who can open a safe deposit 
box in case of a homicide or other deaths the peace officers 
are called upon to investigate. It is well known the im- 
portant part county clerks and court clerks have in 
criminal cases that reach the courts. So it is with every 
one classified below, they have an important task, though 
not so frequent as a police officer or a deputy sheriff, in 
matters the police are called to take over:

The Association has appointed legislative committees 
from time to time to meet with the Assemblymen and 
the Senator from Fresno County, on matters of interest 
to law enforcement officers. The Association has spon- 
sored bills pertaining to motor vehicles, and violations as 
well as other bills affecting law enforcement. 

One of the outstanding moves the Association has made, 
in which Chief Wallace was instrumental, was the or- 
ganization of a school for peace officers. This has proven 
most beneficial to both the present and future officers 
of the law, and is still in progress at this time. 

Following is the corps of officers elected annually since 
the end of 1936. Each group has contributed its share 
to the success of the Fresno County Peace Officers' Asso- 
ciation and today the membership of that organization 
is over 250 peace officers:

Captain of Detectives Daniel Lung 
Of Fresno Police Department 

In the Detective Bureau, Fresno has a man whose ex- 
perience of nearly a quarter of a century as a member 
of the Police Department, has gained experience that 
makes him invaluable in conducting the criminal investi- 
gations of the Department. 




Dktf.ctivf Captain Danifl Lunc 

Captain Daniel Lung has iilled this position in Fresno 
for years and he has achieved a record of success in 
bringing in law breakers that makes a mighty bright chap- 
ter in the history of the Fresno Police Department. 

He has handled the investigation of every important 
criminal case appearing in his town, and when it comes 
to getting his man the Northwest Mounted Police have 
nothing on Captain Lung. 

Well aware of the pattern or the modus operandi that 
different criminals follow in their unlawful pursuits, he 
is able to get at the bottom of who commits a crime so 
fast that he has the crook pegged before he can get very 
far away. He keeps well posted on any newcomers who 
display no intention of engaging in honest endeavors. 

In a city the size of Fresno, as well as cities larger or 
smaller, it's comforting to know that there is a man of 
Captain Lung's ability able to cope with the criminals 
who see a rich field for their nefarious undertakings. His 
reputation of seldom missing out on a case is well known 
to hardened criminals, who understandingly skip Fresno 
as a stop for a job or two. 

When he brings a man into court, accused of a felony, 
he has his case well prepared and the record of convictions 
through the years show how thorough he and his detail are 
in presenting evidence before a jury.

Traffic Captain Joseph Brady of 
Fresno Police Department 

Automobile traffic has been a headache for poHce 
departments throughout the country for years, and each 
year it gets more complex. It has become a matter well 
understood by all Police Chiefs that the dealing with this 
kind of work, who can grasp the importance of handling 
a Traffic Bureau, and who is capable of making changes 




Captain Joseph E. Brady 

to meet the ever increasing demands for curbing accidents, 
with its tremendous loss of life, its great number of in- 
juries, and the stupenduous property damage. 

Fresno has a man who measures well up on the above 
qualifications. He is Captain Joseph E. Brady, a member 
of the Police Department for over 22 years. 

He has a small squad which directs all traffic matters. 
He is capable in figuring out ways to curb accidents, and 
that he has been successful in this line is indicated that, de- 
spite the large increase of permanent population and the 
large increase in the numbers of automobiles that pass 
through or who stop to shop in Fresno, accidents have not 
kept pace with these increases. 

He is handicapped like other traffic experts in that there 
has never been any law that will put sufficient brains in 
many drivers to permit them to realize what their infrac- 
tions of the traffic laws will bring about in death and 
injury.

Sergeant W. J. Mortland Fresno Police Dept. Boss 

In the past few years it has become recognized that 
one of the most important units of a law enforcement 
agency is a well organized Bureau of Identification, with 
a man who knows all the answers in this exacting caUing, 
in charge. 

In Fresno the Police Department has, in Detective 




Sergeant W. J. Mortland 

Sergeant W. J. Mortland a man second to none in his 
knowledge of how to operate a Bureau of Identification. 

He got his first training in the county's Bureau of 
Identification and in 1938 joined the Police Department. 
Since then he has installed one of the most complete 
bureaus that you will find in this State. He is thoroughly 
grounded in finger prints, and his "mugs" of arrested 
men lose a lot of the old rogue gallery photos of by gone 
years. He has a complete file of prints and photos, and 
his records are up-to-date and complete. 

He assists in training police ofiicers of the department 
and is a member of the graduating class last month of 
the FBI National Police Academy. What he learned there 
he will apply to his own department and to any depart- 
ment of neighboring cities who want to bring their Identi- 
fication Bureaus to a higher state of perfection.

has been asked to do the job — in 19.i9 — for Merced and 
in 1944 he acted for the city of Hanford. 

During the war he was pressed into the service oT 
the Air Corps. He was in charge of Technical Training 
Command. As ordnance specialist he had charge of small 
arms training, a job he was well qualified to handle. He 
was out of police work a year in this war duty. 

He has served in the various branches of the Depart- 
ment, including a spell as a Detective Sergeant in the 
Detective Bureau. He won high praise for the thorough 
manner he took up each assignment made to him. 

The man who has charge of the midnight to 8 a. in. 
platoon is Lieutenant S. A. Meek. He has over 20 years 
of police service behind him. During this score of years 
he has worked in every detail of the Fresno Police De- 
partment, spending seven years with the Traffic Bureau 
as a motorcycle officer. 

It takes no great imagination to figure that by his long 
service and the many branches of the Department he has 
served so well that Lieutenant Meek has picked up a 
lot o<^ experience that comes in handy during his hours 
of duty five mornings a week, when most all law abiding 
people are getting their share of slumber.

Sergeant McCoy Handles Special Service 
For Fresno Police Department 

Handling juveniles who stray from the straight and 
narrow path and fall afoul of the law has always been 
something every right thinking Police Department has 
given considerable thought. Most people realize that put- 
ting the stigma of a jail record and incarceration is some- 




Sergeant J. H. McCoy 

thing to be avoided when juveniles get into minor trouble, 
and they are prone to extend this dislike for even the young 
ones who commit their first serious offense. 

Many ways have been devised to handle this situation, 
but down in Fresno, Chief Raymond T. Wallace has 
fashioned a method that has paid off ever since he intro- 
duced it back in early 1940. 

It is the creation of a Special Service Bureau, headed 
by Sergeant J. H. McCoy, father of four children, three 
of whom saw rough service in the last war. 

It is the duty of Sergeant McCoy and the force of 
officers detailed under him to see that juveniles who 
wander from the paths of rectitude be saved the black 
marks accenting a jail and court record. 

Many a boy and girl have come before this Special 
Service Bureau, which works with and has the whole- 
hearted support of Parents and Teachers Association, 
church, fraternal and civic clubs. And many a child has 
been steered into the paths of righteousness by the kindly 
understanding of this Bureau, and the constructive man- 
ner they handle their cases.

FRESNO POLICE DEPARTMENT 

(Continued from page 6) 

He worked closely with the various Federal agencies, the 
Army and Navy leaders for over five years. For Fresno 
had within close proximity three war bases, each at times 
having 15,000 men and women engaged in the work 
of preparing for the victor>' that has been ours. 

Fresno during these years, busy too with providing 
much in the way of food and fruits of many varieties, 
handled all these young men and women engaged in the 
serious business of v>'arfare in a way that drew many in- 
stances of commendations. Fresno was free from all the 
vices that used to follow the declarations of war. The 
men on their times oS found the people of the city hos- 
pitable, providing many forms of clean recreation and 
entertainment, and the Police Department saw that none 
who got a little out o"" line were manhandled. 

Through these turbulent years, with hundreds of thou- 
sands of people passing through on Highway 99, with 
the Santa Fe and Southern Pacific railway companies 
pouring thousands more into the city, and handling end- 
less trains of freight. Chief Wallace and his force of 
officers, undermanned because 19 policemen answered the 
call of their countr>\ administered the law in a manner 
that gave the city a high place in the nation's municipali- 
ties for superb law enforcement. 

No Chief of Police rcaliies more than Chief Wallace 
that the day of selecting a police officer on the basis that 
he is of a strong back, knows a man who knows a man 
who is the brother of the guy who knows a city council- 
man is over. He knows that a man who takes up the 
caUing of a policeman must have something more than 
a willingness to mix it with a law breaker and dump him 
in a patrol wagon. He realizes that a man who takes up 
law enforcement work must have a head on his shoulders, 
a head that is open to study and training on how to serve 
the people who are law abiding. Ever since he has taken 
over the Police Department Chief Wallace has put the 
proper training of his personnel as his most important 
work. His 13^ men and women have to be proficient in 
ever>' phase of their work, and once made a member of 
the Department they mXist continue to improve them- 
selves in the various things so essentially necessary to make 
them proficient in their calling. 

The Department, under Chief Wallace, has kept pace 
with modern police procedure. Under his direction it has 
taken the lead in several changes that have been adopted 
by other law enfprcement agencies throughout, not only 
California, but of the nation. It was the Fresno Police 
Department that introduced the three-wheel motorcvcle 
rider for marking the tires of parked cars. This sped up 
the checking of overtime parking. 

Taking moving pictures of suspected drunken drivers 
of automobiles is another of his innovations. The success 
of this drastic change from past procedures has been 
adopted in other sections of the country. 

At the election last November the people of Fresno 
voted the Police Department personnel a forty hour week.

> which is indicative of the high place Chief Wallace and 
his men occupy in the hearts of citizens of the city. The 
change in working hours went into effect January 10. 

An application is in the hands of the proper city of- 
ficials for an additional H men to the present 135. 

Fresno, ever since the automobile has been established 
as a means of transportation, has been faced with the 
same problem of caring for those who come into the city 
in their cars. To help solve this problem the Police De- 
partment has installed 1000 parking meters throughout 
the business section, and on April 14, the people are 
to vote on whether to retain them or not. 

For nearly ten years the Police Department has had 
in service short wave station KGZA. This station, built 
by Radio Technician Robert M. Shuler, services 26 two- 
way radio equipped cars for the Police Department and 
two for the Fire Department. It has, as it has in all other 
police subdivisions brought the members of the Depart-

timely law enforcement among the members as well as 
other agencies charged with keeping the peace. 

Sheriff George J. Overholt's county department operates 
in conjunction with the Police Department Station. The 
sheriff has 26 two-way units. The Police Department also

Mayor Z. S. Leymel, who was first elected in 1929 

and served until 1937 and again elected in 1941, having 

served since that date, is head of the Department of 




Radio Engineer R. M. Schuler 

Public Service and General Welfare. Under this classifica- 
tion comes his supervision over the Police, Fire and Health 
Departments and the City Pound. 

Like all American cities, Fresno is feeling the effect of 
the post war increase in crimes. Yet the records show 
that the number of arrests is more than keeping ahead 
of the crimes committed. And that the increase in crime 
is not as great as in the increase in newcomers. 

From the last fiscal report of the Police Department 
for Fresno the following facts are presented to show just 
how busy members of the Police Department have been. 

The number of burglaries for the year was 642, arrests 
cleared up most of these; homicides 4, all cleared by four 
arrests; robberies 174, many solved with 72 arrests; ag- 
gravated assaults, 44; stolen autos 601, of which 584 
wrre recovered. 

Police answered 7947 calls and 81,199 radio calls were 
sent out. There were received and sent 16,847 teletype 
messages. 

The patrol wagons made 705 5 runs, travelling over 
21.000 miles to bring in evil doers. 

During the year Chief Wallace's men made 41,124 
arrests with the high average of 34,597 convictions. There 
are pending some 1383 cases. 

There were 149 arrests made for other cities. 

The Detective Department investigated 3212 complaints. 

The Special Service Bureau had 564 cases to look after. 

Minor traffic law violations brought 29,077 arrests. 
There were 147 arrests for auto theft; 184 for drunk 
driving; 1935 for speeding and reckless driving 186. 

Traffic deaths for the year were 23. 

Of property stolen to the value of $584,693.24 there 
was recovered $463,862.26. A record any city might well 
be proud to have.

POLICE AND PEACE OFFICERS' JOURNAL

WILLIE CAMPI PASSES AWAY 

Albert J. De Campos, known under the professional 
name of Willie Campi died the night of April 12. In 
his passing the Police and Peace Officers' Journal 
[loses its oldest employee and the most faithful and honest 
[man we have ever dealt with. For over 20 years he has 
jbeen advertising representative of this Journal, and until 
la few months ago, when he was the victim of a street 
icar accident which resulted in his right knee cap being 
•fractured, he followed the work he was so well capable 
>of doing. 

j During the years he has been on this magazine he has 
Ivisited many Chiefs of Police, Sheriffs and other law 
lenforcement officials throughout Northern California, and 
with all of these he made fast friends, who always wel- 
comed him back, for he sought only clean advertising 
;and sold it on the basis of this publication's effort to make 
it an organ which would bring all agencies into closer 
association. 

i He was a man who had no enemies, blessed with a dis- 
position for tolerance and understanding that but few 
men ever possess, he would go out of his way in an effort 
to straighten out any difficulties a friend or acquaintance 
lof his might be faced with. Though a sick man for many 
years past he never complained and when the accident, 
referred to above, laid him up for weeks he shrugged it 
off as "one of those things." 

Our friend Campi was ^6 years of age, born and 
reared in San Francisco. As a youth he gained some 
[renown as a lightweight boxer, his late brother, Eddie 
ICampi, being a bantamweight boxer of no mean ability. 
' He is survived by his widow and three sons. The 
family home is at 3623 Irving Street. The funeral was 
held April 17, from Gantner, Felder and Kenney. Re- 
quiem mass was said at the Church of the Holy Name, 
iwhere a large concourse of friends appeared to pay their 
last respects.

I WATCH FOR THIS MAN 

' The Better Business Bureau of Gan Francisco has warned 
|»arages, taxicab companies and airports to be on the 
lookout for a man who claims to represent a manufacturing 
bompany located in Charleston, South Carolina, in offer- 
ing a cleaning agent for sale. He demonstrates the cleaner 
\>n airplane fabrics with excellent results, but the fluid 
tvhich he delivers at $72 per case, cash in advance, is an 
ineffective cleaning agent entirely ditferent from the 
sample used in the demonstration. 

' Houston, New Orleans and Sacramento firms have al- 
teady been victimized by this operator, the Bureau warned. 
t^Jo such firm has yet been located in Charleston, South 
Carolina.

POLICE AND PEACE OFFICERS" JOURNAL 



April, J 947 



GOLF CHAMP JIM MOLINARI 

The San Francisco Police Department has during its 
almost a century of history presented many of its members 
III championships of various sports events. 

In years past San Francisco policemen have made fine 
records in swimming, boxing, shotputs, handball, tug-of- 
war, bowling and golf. 

There is now in the Department a member who has 
risen mighty high in the international game of golf. Golf 
it must be remembered is a game in which regular practice 
plays an important part. Few players ever get out of the 
dub class because they cannot afford the time to go out 
on the golf courses and swing their clubs at a little 
white ball. 

But the San Francisco Policeman, handicapped as he 
must naturally be from going out day after day and 
travelling 18 holes of golf has done very well indeed. 
He is Officer James Molinari, attached to Northern Police 
Station, on a night platoon and his beat is along the Polk 
Street district. As a police officer he has a fine record. But 
in golf he has made the headlines for years. 

On March 30, out on the Harding Park golf course, 
won his third city tournament, the second man to achieve 
this distinction, in one of the finest games ever played in 
this event, and before the largest crowd that ever watched 
the contestants for the city championship. 

In last month's tournament he defeated Robert Silvestri 
of Colma, two up in a 36-hole match. 

Officer Molinari has won two Northern California golf 
titles, and he is a colorful player, enjoys exchanging banter 
with the galleryites that come to watch golf matches, and 
he gives a great show, either in winning or losing.

SAFETY PATROL REVIEW 
SCHEDULED FOR MAY 28 

San Francisco will pay tnbute to the public service 
record of its School Safety Patrols on Wednesday, May 28, 
w-hen more than 4,000 young sentinels of safety will 
pass in review before civic leaders, public officials and 
thousands of San Franciscans. For the third consecutive 
year the parade and review will be held at Kezar Stadium, 
in GcJden Gate Park, where ample seating capacity will 
be provided for those wishing to view the colorful 
spectacle. 

The forthcoming parade and review will mark the 
twenty-fourth year during which there has been no traffic 
accident to a San Francisco school child at a crossing 
guarded by a Safety Patrol unit. 

Arrangements for the event are being supervised by 
Police Inspector Byron J. Getchell, who for more than 
twenty years has been in charge of training of the Safety 
Patrols. He is assisted by Officer Francis J. Lynch. 

Sponsoring organizations which are assisting in the 
preparations, and which will be represented in the review- 
ing stand, include the San Francisco Board of Education, 
the San Francisco Police Department, the Parent-Teacher 
Association and the California State Automobile As- 
sociation.

POLICE AND PEACE OFFICERS' JOURNAL 

LETTERS TO CHIEF DULLEA 



April, 194| 



We wish to express our thanks and appreciation for 
your kind cooperation in allowing Lieutenant Daniel Mc- 
Klem to address the members of our guard department 
last month, on the dangers of robbery, and the necessity 
for remaining ever on the alert. 

Lieutenant McKlem's remarks were very much to the 
point, and were also helpful to us in stressing upon our 
guards the need for alertness. 

E. C. Mmllard 

Assistant Vice President, 

Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco. 

I would like to call to your attention the splendid co- 
operation and assistance rendered to Undersheriff Michael 
N. Canlis and other officers of this department during the 
recent investigation of the Wally Chan murder, as given 
by Sergeant John Dyer of the Chinatown Detail. On 
occasions Sergeant Dyer came from home on his time off 
and spent many hours with my officers, assisting in secur- 
ing much material information. 

Sergeant Dyer's attitude and cooperation surely ex- 
emplifies the finest traditions of a peace officer. Without 
his giving unselfishly of his time and effort, our case would 
not be so near successful as it is at the present time. 

I would appreciate it very much if you would convey 
my personal thanks to Sergeant Dyer, and be assured 
that I will not be unmindful of the service rendered by 
your Department. 

Carlos A. Sousa, 

Sheriffff-Coroner, 

Stockton, San Joaquin County.

Hamilton to San Quentin prison for second degree bur- 
glary for burglarizing of various food stores in this city, 
of liquor and safes. 

This terminates two cases on which we have been work- 
ing since December and it was due to the cooperation of 
your Department, especially James Johnson, Inspector in 
charge of your Burglary Detail, and the testimony of 
Officer William Slissman of the Southern Station, and 
Inspector Harold Jackson also of the Burglary Detail, that 
the case was brought to a successful conclusion. 

Therefore, will you convey to these officers, my deep 
appreciation for their help and for the many past favors 
done for my Department. 

Assuring you of my ever willingness to reciprocate 
at any time if the opportunity ever presents itself, I am, 

Edward J. Wheeler, 
Chief of Police, 
San Carlos.

I have just returned to my home in Monrovia after 
ispending a week in the Bay Area, and while in San 
Francisco had to inquire for directions from your traffic 
officers on several occasions. 

I It gives me a great deal of pleasure to report to you 
that each and every officer to whom I appealed was most 
courteous and took trouble beyond that which was neces- 
(sary, to help me. One in particular was outstanding in his 
courtesy and the pains he took. That was Officer l.i92. 
(Ed Note: No. 1 J92 is Officer Frank G. Sevieri.) 

This letter is entirely unsolicited, but surely deserved.

Colonel, U. S. Army, retired,

Monrovia. 

* * * 

This past week, (Feb. 23, 1947) we were in your city, 
for the first time, and naturally were in need of advice 
on places of special interest, and for directions to get to 
the same. The greater part of our inquiries were answered 
by members of your police force. 

; In every instance the information was given thoroughly 
and very courteously and showed a tendency to be 
friendly and cooperative to a degree not found in Police 
Departments of a number of larger cities we have visited 
n the past. 

There are always people who will criticize, but few 
who will think of bringing to your attention the nicer and 
^nore courteous things your men do. They fail to con- 
sider the trial and tribulations of a peace officer, so we 
ire writing to thank your force, through you, for helping 
"nake our stay in San Francisco very pleasant.

GUNMAN HELD AFTER CHASE 

A minor auto collision on the night of March 8, led 
to the dramatic, gunpoint capture by a rookie policeman 
of a "one man crime wave" after a sixty-five mile-an-hour 
chase through the Mission District. 

Homer Morehead, 2'>, a morgue attendant at San Fran- 
cisco Hospital, was jailed on suspicion of two kidnapings 
and two robberies — most of them committed within 
an hour. 

Later police said he confessed, explaining he did it 
"to pay off gambling debts." 

Police related that Morehead approached Harry T. 
Simpson, at the Simpson Realty Company, 1J02 Valencia 
Street, about 5 p. m. and persuaded him to drive him to 
sec a house he "wanted to buy." 

En route, he held Simpson up with a pistol, took $20 
cash and an $80 watch, then fled in Simpson's car. 

Five minutes later, Morehead smashed into an auto 
driven by Charles S. Martinez, 29, of 9.^7 Russia Street, 
disabling both cars. 

Undismayed, the morgue attendant produced an auto- 
matic and ordered a passing motorist, Louis C. Rattaro, 
418 Lisbon Street, to speed him away. Rattaro did. 

Martinez hailed another car, driven by Reno G. Vicini, 
21, of 678 Lisbon Street, and gave chase. 

Here enters the law. 

At Gottingen Street and Silver Avenue, Martinez and 
Vidni found Officer Walter H. Kracke, 26, who has been 
on the force fourteen months. 

Kracke roared after the other car, overtook it at San 
Bruno Avenue and Alemany Boulevard, and forced it 
to the curb. 

TTie patrolman and the morgue attendant stepped out, 
each with pistol drawn. 

Then Morehead meekly surrendered.

RIFLE GOES UNDERGROUND 

To save his precious rifle from the Jap invaders, a 
Filipino guerilla incased it in a heavy inner tube and 
buried it in 1941, according to word received by the Win- 
chester Repeating Arms Company. 

Four years later, on February 12, 1945, the Filipino 
dug it up and used it to help kill five Japanese. The rifle fresno 
is a .22 caliber Model 74 automatic and the only thing 
wrong with it after its four years underground was that 
the bluing on the barrel was "a little corroded."

ihod in such cases is to avoid and evade poHtical influ- 

>■■ hy having the matter partly in the hands of the police 

ve or sheriff and partly in the hands of the Civil 

. people. 

in two outstanding items of the conference were; Pro- 
1 unis in the department, and Civil suits for law en- 
i einents. 

n the matter of promotions Inspector Gurnea outlined 
hi Federal Bureau of Investigations method which call 
a no written tests and depends wholly on demonstrated 
friency. This demonstrated efficiency Inspector Gurnea 
t ed is determined not hy the efficiency of the person to 
lepromoted but by the efficiency of his entire staff, and 
h gross efficiency of his office. 

Phis efficiency is obtained by periodic "inspections" of 
i office by an inspector from the Federal Bureau of In- 
tttigation in Washington, D. C. 

The trend of the conference discussion was to the effect 
ht, at the present time, only the best recruits should be 
EJred; and that a probation period for such recruits 
huld be at least six months — preferably more. 

'ederal Agent Harry Kimball recounted, in detail, sev- 
A civil suits in California, instituted against police and 
VriSs departments. He also pointed out the reasons of 
ivh suits. In ninety per cent of the cases outlined by Mr. 
Cnball, no suit would have resulted if the officer in ques- 
iii had been well trained and fully cognizant of his police 
>»vers and possibilities, Mr. Kimball stated. 

lalph Hoyt, District Attorney of Alameda Count>-, was 
;V last speaker on the program. 

ie dealt, in detail, on the powers, and on the lack of 
Ip, in the matter of police officers and others making 
lEsts. 

vdr. Hoyt set forth in detail, the civil suits arising against 
>^ce officers, individually, police officers and chiefs of 
)Mce combined, in civil suits. 

^s a result of questions proposed from the floor in the 
nfter of arrests, Mr. Hoyt assured the members of the

conference that a thorough adherence to the provisions of 
Section 836 of the Penal Code of the State of Cahfornia 
would obviate the slightest danger of a civil suit. 

In closing the two-day session of the Bay Counties" 
Peace Officers' Conference Chief Special Agent Harry 
Kimball stated it was the most comprehensive and out' 
standing conference of which it had been his pleasure to 
attend in many years, and he said he felt that California 
as a state was foremost in the matter of up-to-date policing. 

The two-day conference was concluded by a brief ad- 
dress from our California State Governor, Earl Warren, 
who stated, that, for several years, even while he was very 
much sued, in civil suits, in Alameda County, California, 
he was always, first, last, and with the police department. 

The Governor was loudly applauded when he stated 
that the peace and liberty of California today, tomorrow, 
and forever, is in the hands of its law enforcement officers.

BUSY MAN PRAISES POLICE 

"I am a very busy man but I just had to take the time 
to write the Pohce Department and comment on one of 
your very fine young officers. Last Friday, January 10, 
1947, as I was walking along Market Street, my attention 
was called to six men trying to hold a big, burly Negro 
while a plainclothes officer was trying to put handcuffs 
on him. From what I could gather, the Negro had com- 
mitted an act of robbery. I was beginning to be afraid 
that the Negro was going to get away from these men 
when along came Officer No. 326, William Van Laak, 
Co. K, Traffic Bureau, and took the situation in hand. 
This officer showed extraordinary fine training, as he 
got such a hold on the Negro that the Negro could not 
break this hold, then the officer put the handcuffs on this 
Negro. The San Francisco Police Department can be 
proud to have an officer like Officer No. 326, William 
Van Laak, working on the Department to help cut 
down the crime wave. I just can't forget how this officer 
handled the Negro with such ease and yet he had the 
Negro where he couldn't move. 

"Tell this officer to keep up the good work!

CAPTAIN ENGLER, S.F.P.D. SECRETARY 



Bv Opie L. Warner 



On January 2, 1929, the present San Francisco Police 
L)epartment secretary, John A. Engler, was sworn in as 

patrolman in the San Francisco Police Department. 

Eleven years later, on February 16, 1940, he had the 
ank of Captain, as secretary of one of the nation's largest 
'dice Departments — truly a remarkable record for a San 
•rancisco boy who had not yet reached his fortieth 
)irthday. 




Captain John Engler 

As Department Secretary, Captain Engler is also in 
charge of Headquarters Company which includes: The 
City Prison, the Maintenance and Equipment Bureau, the 
Police Academy, the Chinatown Squad, the Morals Squad, 
the Juvenile Bureau, the Property Clerk's Office, the 
Bureau of Permits, the Pistol Range and the General 
Office. 

In addition to personally meeting the many citizens 
who come to the Chief's office it is the duty of the De- 
jpartment Secretary to prepare the annual budget, also the 
detailed orders for parades, public celebrations, conven- 



tions, and so on, as well as handling the department cor- 
respondence and the various records kept in the general 
office and in the dozen subunits of Headquarters Company. 

Yes, being Secretary of the San Francisco Police De- 
partment is an all-day job, every minute of the day. 

But Captain Engler has an abundance of youthful en- 
ergy, is thoroughly competent, a natural born office exec- 
utive endowed with a sunny disposition — so he attends 
to a multitude of daily tasks as a matter of course. 

Chief Charles W. DuUea is recognized as a nationally 
outstanding police executive and, when, seven years ago, 
he became Chief of Police of San Francisco, his first 
official act was to place Inspector John A. Engler in charge 
of Headquarters Company, as Department Secretary. 

Chief Dullea had a very large group from which to 
select his major domo. The Chief knows men and knows 
his department. He is also well aware of the fact that 
the man who holds the reins and makes the department 
move as a unit is the Department Secretary. Without a 
second thought Chief Dullea put youthful, competent, 
smiling Inspector Engler into the top spot — the depart- 
ment's most arduous assignment. 

And Captain Engler has, from the first, handled, with- 
out a hitch, the thousand and one details which fall to 
the lot of the busy individual who handles so much im- 
portant and routine work for the Chief of Police of a 
metropolitan city. 

When you meet the captain you immediately sense 
that he is mentally and physically alert — that he is not 
in the least bit bored with your problem and that it will 
be attended to with competence and dispatch. 

Always an ardent student of police affairs the Captain 
is an authority on police administration, police records, 
and every phase of policing. 

While attending the Federal Bureau of Investigation 
Police Academy course of studies at Washington, D. C, 
for police officials, he was chosen as class president and 
valedictorian. 

Being a first class stenographer with a natural flare for 
figures one of the Captain's first moves as department 
secretary was the codification of the hundreds of depart- 
ment "Orders" — general, special, and permanent. Today

POLICE AND PEACE OFFICERS' JOURNAL 



May -June, IS 



he is able to instantly give the day, date, and paragraph 
number of all such "orders" issued at various times by 
the chief of PoHce or the Police Commissioners. 

Every day is a busy day for Captain Engler — and 
oft times he has to wrestle with vexatious situations — but 
that fact does not prevent him from yearly increasing his 
army of friends, both within and without the Police De- 
partment, by his willingness to serve, his outstanding com- 
petence and his unfailing affability. 

The Captain is a good all round athlete, but his hobby 
is handball. As a member of the South End Rowing 
Club he has been through many strenuous handball tour- 
naments. 

Of Captain John A. Engler it may be truly said that 
he is tops in his chosen profession; and with equal truth 
it may be stated that the San Francisco Police Depart- 
ment is indeed lucky to have at the helm a man of such 
calibre. 



PENINSULA COLUMNIST TELLS 
ABOUT RACKETS 

The following is from the "Prowler" column, written 
by Dallas Wood for the Peninsula newspapers: The Palo 
Alto Times, The Redwood City Tribune and The Bur- 
lingame Advance. Columnist Wood, who gave us per- 
mission to reproduce this article which appeared in Feb- 
ruary, has for years conducted his column in a clean, 
informative and well written manner, and he has a large 
following of peninsula readers who are entertained by 
his comments as well as being enriched by some of the 
information he prepares for them six days a week: 

A current version of an old racket is practiced by the 
roving gentlemen who ring doorbells to offer "entirely 
free" the installation of stainless steel sinks. 

The proposition is to install a sink free if the house- 
holder will allow it to be used as a demonstrator to sell 
others. A commission on every sink sold by that means 
is promised. 

The victim, however, never collects any commission. 
The manager of the Better Business Bureau in a city 
where that racket has been worked says that the victim 
winds up signing bank notes and an application for an 
FHA loan. The cost of the "free" sink turns out to be 
about $700. 

Beware always of the stranger who comes with his 

offers of "free" things. 

* * * 

In some localities the crooks have capitalized the March 
of Dimes publicity by pretending to be polio victims and 
creating the impression that they are volunteer collectors 
for the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis. Such 
canvasses are not authorized. If they were, the solicitors 
would be required to carry proper credentials. 

The linen scarcity has produced a new type of grifter. 
This one poses as a laundry collector. He picks up laundry 
from servants or men when the housewife is away. The 



regular laundryman is naturally quite amazed when toIcE 
that the bag already has been picked up. When days 
pass and the washed clothes are not returned, the fake 
is clearly recognized. 

* * * 

The house-rent racketeers are busy in some places, and 
finding pickings good. One swindle is perpetrated by 
entering into a purchase agreement for a house, tendering 
at the time a rubber check on a distant bank. Thus the 
key to the building is obtained and also the right to show 
the house. It is then "resold" to a number of other 
people, or rented to a long list of home-seekers, and a 
deposit is collected from each victim. 

Another variation is paying a small deposit on furniture 
for sale by a family moving out, and then showing the 
house to victims as being for rent or sale and collecting 
deposits from each victim. 

In some cities the swindlers have been brazen enough 
to make "sales" or "rentals" by showing the outside of 
the house only, and offering some excuse for inability to 
show the inside at that time. The alleged death or illness 
of an occupant has been the usual excuse. 

* * * 

In San Diego the Better Business Bureau recently called 
attention to a neon sign racket. A "repairman" would" 
call at a business place to repair the neon sign when the 
boss was away. He demanded $80 in payment for two 
transformers and his labor. The employee in charge, as- 
suming that the boss had authorized the job, paid out the 
money. A reputable neon company investigating the job 
found that the "transformers" consisted of two pieces of 
wire, 20 and 48 inches long respectively. 

* * * 

A companionate racket deals in light bulbs. Customers 
are offered "100-watt globes" by roving salesmen who 
say their bulbs will give more light and longer service 
than ordinary ones. One thousand hours of lighting are 
promised. The bulbs turn out to be of lesser wattage, 
and inferior quality, giving no more than 50 hours of 



Garages and Taxi firms have been victimized by the 
faker who offers a cleaning fluid put up under a name 
closely resembling in spelling the product of a reputable 
brand. The worthless imitation contains colored water and 
a few useless chemicals, for which the victims are charged 
$72 a case. The demonstrations that convince the buyers 
are made with a totally different cleaning compound that 
looks like the spurious product. 

* * * 

Another swindler who works business houses while the 
bosses are away, arrives with a sack of "DDT powder 
which he says he is to spray at night after closing hours, 
under order by the boss. He collects money from the 
employees, and says that he will return that night to 
spray the insects. 

He never returns. The boss later learns that his em-

Racketeers Find No Welcome in San Francisco 



Gangsters and racketeers have found San Francisco a 
[nighty unhealthy place to ply their criminal activities. 
The following general order made by Chief of Police 
Dharles W. Dullea will give no encouragement to those 
individuals who think they can gather easy money by 
'ordng their illegal methods on law abiding citizens. San 




Chief Charles W. Dullea 

Frandsco has, since the start of the late prohibition era, 
I'been free from rackets and the people of San Francisco 
' fcan rest assured this condition will continue. 
The order issued on May 26 follows: 
Mayor Roger D. Lapham, members of the Police Com- 
mission, the District Attorney, and I, were invited by 
the Grand Jury to appear before them on the evening 
'of May 21, 1947, for the purpose of discussing current 
police problems. 

It is a matter of common knowledge that assertions 
liave been made during the past few months, that eastern 
gangsters and racket men were migrating to the West 
and that some of them had taken up their abode in San 
Francisco. The discovery of the body of Nick de John 
ton May 9, gave some credence to that which theretofore 
'had been mere allegation and assertion. 

San Francisco, through its Police Department, has 
iproclaimed over the years, with reasonable pride, that 
the gangster and racket man, could not carry on his 
illegal calling here. Police records vindicate such declara- 
tion and to the credit of our present police officers and 
the able men who preceded them in the department, this 
city and county has been rather studiously avoided by 
'those who profit by, and through organized crime. 
I Candor with ourselves and reflection upon our actions 
'are wholesome attributes. No Department can rest en- 
tirely upon the laurels of the past to justify the continuing 
confidence by the law-abiding citizen. A police depart- 
'ment, through its members, must be eternally vigilant 
and vigorously active in the suppression of crime and 
I the arrest of criminals. 
Ll 



Every member of this Department must be mindful 
of the tremendous responsibility which rests upon him. 
Like every other organization, a police department is as 
strong as its weakest link. Unified action, through Com- 
manding Officers, must assert itself in the fields of crime 
and vice. That we have successfully combatted organized 
gambling and organized prostitution, no one can gainsay. 
This drive, however, must be intensified and carried into 
every field where the gangster might attempt to assert 
himself. The eyes of all are upon each member of the 
department, and each officer to justify himself, must 
show courageous, vigorous action in the field of law 
enforcement. 

Company Commanders shall check carefully, within 
their districts, on places where the criminal element might 
congregate or reside. The special function of the Bureau 
of Inspectors is to ferret out those who intend to carry 
their criminal propensities into action and see that they 
are arrested and prosecuted with vigor and determination. 

The vagrancy statutes have been valuable in the past 
in ridding San Francisco of the criminal scum and if 
more serious charges cannot be placed against the gang- 
ster, then the vagrancy statutes should be applied. 

This order is NOT intended to create an hysterical 
situation in this city and county; neither, is it intended 
to bring about an abstract crusade for the purpose of 
evading responsibility. While we must proceed with all 
our might against the criminal, the law-abiding citizen 
must be protected in his full rights and the constitutional 
requirements must, in all cases, be respected and obeyed. 

Without elaborating, at this time, on the investigation 
concerning the murder of Nick de John, I want to com- 
pliment the men assigned to the case for the vigor and 
thoroughness which they have displayed. We look for- 
ward with confidence for the complete solution of this 
murder and its background. But, irrespective of the out- 
come of the present investigation, we must drive the 
gangster and the racketman from our midst and assure 
once more the people of this muncipality, that the con- 
fidence they have reposed in their Police Department has 
NOT been in vain.

Berkeley's Police Department Under Chief Holstrom 

Specializes In Control o( Juvenile Delinquency and Aiding 

Other Agencies With Its Famous Lie Detector 

Through Inspector Albert E. Riedel 



By B. S. (Sandy) Sanders 
Veteran Retired T^ewspaperman, Editor and Writer 

Tendency to crime develops among juveniles. 

Unless curbed in youth it breaks out in the adult, 
from petty theft to murder. 

Law enforcement officers, criminologists, psychologists 
have proven these two facts over the years. 




Chief John D. Holstrom at his desk keeps in touch with his men 
and "what's doing" via the 2-way radio. 

Detection and conviction of law breakers is a third 
factor which usually gives headaches to law enforcement 
officers and prosecuting attorneys. 

In Berkeley over the years and now under Chief John 
D. Holstrom the Police Department has endeavored to 
solve both the juvenile problem and that of the adult 
offender. 

That the College City's Police Department has made 
tremendous progress is evidenced by the record as to both 
juvenile delinquency and detection and confession of 
crime. 

Chief Holstrom points to his understanding, energetic 
juvenile detail, headed by Inspector Albert E. Reidel and 
its "lie detector," the remarkable bit of mechanism that 
registers the emotions and reactions of the person under 
questioning and has trapped many a suspect in a "lie," 
leading to his confession, conviction and sentence. 

Inspector Reidel Specialist In Both Departments 

Inspector Reidel not only heads the juvenile detail but 
also is in charge of the "lie detector," which represents 
the alpha and omega of crime and criminals, from youth 
to adulthood. 

Inspector Reidel, 18 years a member of the Berkeley 



police force, served six years as head of the boys' program 
and in 1945 was advanced to chief of the juvenile 
division. 

Forty-one years old, coming up through the ranks, 
Reidel since the day he joined the department showed 
a special aptitude for juvenile work. He made friends 
with the youngsters while patrolling the beat. He learned 
a lot about youngsters. 

In 1939 he was appointed to the juvenile detail. 

With a university background of three years at Wil- 
lamette University, Salem, Oregon, a year at the Uni- 
versity of California in 1927 and 1928, and graduate 
work at Willamette in the school of jurisprudence, Reidel 
took a keen interest in baseball and basketball, earning 
his letters in both sports at both universities. 

His love of athletics brought him close to the youth of 
Berkeley both as a patrolman and inspector. 

Able Assistants to Reidel 
Chief Holstrom reveals that in his juvenile division 
activities. Inspector Reidel has able, experienced assistants. 
There is 3.3-year-old Patrolman Victor D. Viera, ap- 
pointed to the department in 1942, whom Reidel chose 
from the ranks with Chief Holstrom 's approval.

San Mateo Police Executives* Association 



San Mateo County has an organization of law enforce- 
ment officers that as far as we can learn, has no equal in 
'his state. This organization is made up of the Chief of 
J'olice of the 13 cities of the county. Chief Zink of Palo 
\lto, Captain E. P. Cassell of the Highway Patrol and 
sheriff James J. McGrath. 

Ihis array of peace officers got together during the war 




Sheriff James J. McGrath 



1 lears, and worked so effectively in civilian defense, looking 
ifter many details asked by the War Department, the 
FBI and other such agencies, that the members decided to 
rontinues as an organized body. 

t Sheriff McGrath is president; Chief C. L. Collins, of 
[iedwood City, vice president and Chief William Maher, 
pf San Bruno, is secretary-treasurer. 

I The members of the organization which is called the 
san Mateo Police Executives Association, get together 
ibout once a month. 

! It is designed to bringing into closer coordination the 
larious peninsula police departments. The Association has 
J program that can be thrown into any crime hunt over 
200 police officers and sheriff's deputies. A system of road 
blocks has been worked out and each police department has 
code numbers, which when flashed over the short wave 
Iradio will tell them that a crime has been committed and 
jthe number of men involved, the means of transportation 
and other necessary information gathered about the crime 
is relayed from the San Mateo Sheriff's radio station. 

Chief Zink has charge of any activity needed in the 
south end of the county, Chief Collins in the Redwood 
City area, Chief O'Brien looks after the San Mateo 
Bridge; Chief Ferral after Dumbarton Bridge; Chief 



Wisnom covers the Skyline area and Chief Belloni the 
northern approaches to the county. 

In case of a robbery, a burglary or a murder if a descrip- 
tion of the car used by the perpetrators of any of these 
crimes is obtained, the description and license number is 
flashed. Two men in patrol cars will start at once to a 
spot they have been instructed to go to, and in a matter of 
seconds all means of exit are covered. 

An example of the speed and effectiveness of the system 
worked out by the Association a recent burglary at Sharps 
Par!: is cited. In a matter of minutes after receiving the 
fl,-!sh of the crime, 14 cars loaded with peace officers from 
a number of cities had converged on the little coast town. 
1 he fact that the sender of the call was late in gettng into 
;;c.!o:i gave the burglars a chance to get away. 

Frequent practices are held and by these practices the 
cruising officers are trained to cover their designated spots 
and to pick up a car sent out to test their observations. 

The Association is a big factor in the mutual aid plan 
adopted by the state through the work of the State Peace 
Officer's Association. 

It is also strong for the members of the various Police 
Departments taking advantage of the FBI training schools. 
Sheriff McGrath is fortunate in having as his Chief 
Radio Technician, Walter Harrington. Ch-ef Harrington 
was employed by the Karr Engineering Co. at Palo Alto 
when he was prevailed upon to take charge of Chief Col- 
lins newly erected short wave station in 1940. He re- 
mained in this position until 1924 when he took over the 
station of Sheriff McGrath. 

He is highly skilled as a radio engineer, and he has 
organized San Mateo County into a fine police radio 
organization. 

He services 100 cars for various police departments and 
the Sheriff's office and fire departments. The Sheriff's of- 
fice call letters are KRCS and he services four other cen- 
tral stations: KSIS, South San Francisco Police; KSPH, 
Hillsborocgh Police; KQC^NI, Burlingame Police; and 
PRAZ, Redwood City Police. 

Sheriff McGrath now has a force of 33 men and a ma- 
tron, five deputies and a secretary have been added since 
the first of the year. He is getting a lot of support for the 
reconstruction of the county jail, which has long outgrown 
its usefulness. 

In Chief Deputy Walter Moore he has a lot of work 
taken off his shoulders, because this deputy in charge of 
criminal activities of the office, is a man who knows his 
way around, and he seldom misses getting a criminal once 
he pulls a job in San Mateo County. 

Deputy Clement Nash in charge of civil matters has 
his hands full in looking after this important end of the 
Sheriff's office. With a growing population, such as the 
county is having, there is much to look after in this line 
of work.

Police Chief Blackmore, San Jose 



On March 1 this year, San Jose got a new Chief of 
'olice, the third one it has had in over 30 years. Last 
February Chief William C. Brown, who succeeded veteran 
Ihief C. N. Black who took a pension after nearly 30 
rears as head of the San Jose Police Department, himself 
ook retirement under pension, owing to ill health. 




Chief Raymond J. Blackmore 

And the city fathers, with no hesitation, appointed 
Captain of Detectives Raymond J. Blackmore as the suc- 
lessor of Chief Brown. 

The new Chief is a San Jose boy, bom in that city in 
906. He got his education in the public schools of San 
lose. After finishing his course he took a position with 
|*ood Machinery Co. He played on the company's baseball 
|eam, having developed into an outstanding catcher. It 
jvas because of his reputation as a ball player that he 
ittracted the attention of the new Assistant Chief of 
rolice J. M. Carter and Detective Kenneth Jordan who 
yere promoting a police baseball team. They needed a 
food catcher and persuaded Catcher Blackmore, then 

12 years of age to take the examination for a spot in the 
dice Department. He passed and on April 29, 1922, he 
'as sworn in as a Police Officer. 

' Though until a few years ago he continued to play 
yith top semi-professional ball teams around the bay area 
f— now he takes his exercise at hand ball and softball at 
which he is no dub — ^he took to police work with an 
nthusiasm that has taken him to the highest port in the 
department. 

For ten years he served as a patrolman under Chief 
31ack, and his record was one any police officer might 
veil be proud of. He studied all methods of law enforce- 
nent and because of his aptitude he was given the work 
if inaugurating radio in the Police Department, back 
n 1932. For six years he served with this unit of the 
department. That year he was promoted to Detective, 



and assigned to the Pawnshop Detail. He worked on 
robbery and burglary cases and again made an enviable 
record. He was promoted to Captain of Detectives in 
1943, a position he held until he was elevated to the 
Chiefship. 

In April last year he completed a course in the FBI 
National Police Academy, and he got plenty of ideas 
about law enforcement that he has had adopted by the 
San Jose Police Department, and these ideas will make 
him even more efficient in his new job. 

As Captain of Detectives he had organized his force 
of 14 men under the Federal Bureau system. 

Chief Blackmore has had his share of narrow escapes. 

One, which singled him out as a fearless peace officer 
was the lynching of the kidnappers and murderers of 
Brooks Hart back in 1933. With Sergeant E. D. Ander- 
son the two put up a desperate fight to save Holmes and 
Thurman from the mob. For nearly four hours they held 
off the lynchers. Every window in the section they were 
barricaded in was broken, and though they used gas. 
Chief Blackmore said no attempt was made by members 
of the mob to manhandle the two valiant officers. Patrol- 
man Blackmore got hit in the chin by a flying rock hurled 
from outside, and had to be taken to the hospital for 
treatment. » 

Another instance was the capture of a rapist. With

Sheriff Hornbuckle of Santa Clara 



Santa Clara County elected a new sheriff last Novem- 
ber, and on January 6, Howard Hornbuckle, former 
Captain in the San Jose Police Department, took over the 
important job of chief law enforcement officer of the 
county. 




Sheriff Howard Hornbuckle 

Sheriff Hornbuckle was born in Santa Rosa on August 
4, 1908 later moving to Petaluma where he got his grade 
schooling, having been a schoolmate of Chief Melvin 
Flohr of Santa Rosa. 

In 1922 he moved to San Jose and after finishing his 
high school course entered San Jose State College, gradu- 
ating in 1931. At San Jose State he won fame as a tackle 
on the football team, being captain in his senior year. 
Soon after graduating he joined the San Jose Police De- 
partment, and displaying keen ability at enforcing the laws 
and bringing in law breakers, he progressed rapidly 
through the ranks. 

lie was promoted to Sergeant in 1937 and Captain in 
January, 1944. He resigned late in 1944 from the police 
Department to go into business with a San Francisco 
concern. He returned to his first love — law enforcement — 
last year when he entered the race for Sheriff and was 
elected at the last general election. 

Sheriff Hornbuckle has a force of 34 men under his 
command. The top men are as follows: 

Undersheriff Thomas Graham. 

Chief Criminal Department John Gibbons. 

Chief Civil Department, Robert Thomson, who during 
his long and capable 28 years service has become recog- 
nized as an expert, among lawyers and courts, in matters 
of a civil nature affecting the administration of the 
Sheriff's office. 

Chief Matron May Smothers. 



Chief Jailors Charles Martin and Daniel Passetta. 

The communications — radio and teletype — and the Bu- 
reau of Identification are handled through the San Jose 
Police Department. 

The Sheriff's office has nine patrol cars equipped with 
two-way radio, patroUing the 1305 square miles of unin- 
corporated territory of Santa Clara County. There are 
239,000 people living permanently in the county, and 
during the harvesting of the various and copious crops 
that come from the rich soil of the county some 30,000 
to 40,000 seasonal workers are added to the population. 
This added number calls for close attention from the 
Sheriff and his deputies. 

There are no substations in the entire county but 
Sheriff Hornbuckle is working to get one established at 
Gilroy. 

At the time of this writing there were 125 prisoners 
ia the antiquated county jail — it seems they may get a 
new one before many more years pass by — and on the 
jail farm, adjacent to the county hospital some 70 more 
were serving their time of awaiting court action. 

During his tenure with the Police Department Sheriff 
Hornbuckle worked ably in the identification department, 
was director of police officers training, conducted the

Chief Howard A. Zink of Palo Alto 



1 Chief Howard A. Zink, of Palo Alto, who rounded 
Lit a quarter of a century as top man in the Stanford 
University city Police Department, has seen many changes 
I law enforcement in this state as well as in the nation. 
' can be truthfully said that he has had a great deal to 




Chief Howard A. Zink 

p with the betterment of this law enforcement in Cali- 
)mia. No peace officer of the West is more studious 
I ferreting out ways and means of making it tougher for 
le lawless element, and better for the law abiding citi- 
ins. He is a chemical engineer, having graduated from 
ennsylvania State University, having been born in Phila- 
•Iphia. With the benefit of a college education he was 
juipped to tackle any job he set his mind to, whether it 
as in chemical engineering or police administration. Hav- 
ig this acquired ability he found it easy to present 
roblems that he had worked out to peace officers of the 
ate. He has, ever since he joined the California State 
eace Officers Association, been a recognized factor in 
tomoting new ideas for the betterment of police work. 

He has served on many important committees and on 
ich and everyone he gave careful study, and tireless 
lergy in getting out a report on each committee's work, 
id these he presented in a logical manner to the general 
pembership, which always went along with him. 
I Chief Zink is a great stickler for raising law enforce- 
ment into a rating of professionalism, for better wages, 
Df better retirement pensions and for shorter work week. 

A year and a half ago he got his safety board to in- 
ugurate the forty-hour week, one of the first Police De- 
lartments in the state to adopt this revolutionary change. 
t has always been the idea of the uninformed public 
pat a policeman should work long hours, with the mini- 
jium of days off. It wasn't so long ago that policemen 
Vorked 12 hours a day and got a couple of days off a 
lonth. The trend is changing to the shorter work week, 
nd as Chief Zink says it pays off in better law enforce- 



ment and better morale. Two days off a week for his 
men which they can spend with their families is some- 
thing that keeps them on their toes during the other five 
days they are on duty. 

He has introduced many changes in the Palo Alto 
Police Department, many to be tried as experiments, but 
they work out so well for enforcing the laws that they 
have been adopted, not only by his city, but by many 
other departments of the west. 

Probably one of the most important innovations he 
has introduced is the formation of a welfare bureau. It 
is well known that there always has been some conflict by 
those who do this work and police officers, each displaying 
a lack of appreciation of the other. 

However Chief Zink's plan has worked out 100 per cent. 

First he engaged two women, who had to have college 
degrees and post graduate courses in welfare work. They 
were appointed members of the Police Department and 
assigned to their work. One is also referee in the Junior 
Traffic court, the other is also a county Juvenile Proba- 
tion officers. By the results of their work, the visiting of 
homes where children are neglected, handling a drunken 
i'ather or mother in an understanding way, taking care 
of an unwed mother, brought them into the good graces 
of the male portion of the Police Department, and a 
good understanding has developed between the two units 
that has done great good for Palo Alto. 

The Palo Alto Police Depirtment was one of the first 
cities in the bay area to adopt radio, back in the early 
?0"s a one-way station was erected, and vhen two-way 
came along Chief Zink was not slow in adopting this new 
idea. His station, besides serving the citv's police p.itrol 
cars, and those of the fire department, hardies all the 
calls and makes assignments over short wave for the Men'o

E- C-Thoit, Palo Alto^s Pioneer Councilman 






E. C. Thoit of Palo Alto may not be the oldest city 
councilman, in point of continuous service, in the state 
of California, he is definitely the second to hold that 
distinction as a municipal administrative public servant. 
(Note: — Councilman Thoit tells us that Albany has a 
councilman who exceeds his record by about ten years. 
The Police and Peace Officers' Journal will get 
around for a write up of that city official at a later date.) 
Councilman Thoit was first elected to the position he 
has held for 38 years in 1909, when Palo Alto was put 
under a charter form of government, being raised from a 
city of the sixth class by an election, a year after a board 
of freeholders had presented the question of the change 
after careful study and consideration. E. C. Thoit was a 
member of the board of freeholders that designed the 
charter. 

He has been reelected every six years with no opposition, 
and his present term on the board of councilman expires 
in 1949, which will make his constructive service to his 
adopted city a matter of 40 years. 

Councilman Thoit was born in San Rafael, and came 
to Palo Alto in 1893. He opened up a shoe store in Palo 
Alto, then a city of one square mile area and a popula- 
tion of some 1200. Two years ago he disposed of his 
shoe business after serving the people of the city and 
the neighboring communities for over 50 years. 

Palo Alto has expanded in area and its population is 
now estimated at around 22,000. 

When he came to Palo Alto in 1893 Stanford Uni- 
versity, just blossoming into the great college it is today, 
had 1800 students registered. Today it has some 7400. 

In 1893 the police department of one man and a city 
marshal was headed by William Trusdale. 

In 1909 when the charter went into effect the designa- 
tion of the head of the Police Department was changed 
to that of Chief of Police, and J. D. Noble was given 
that important post, serving until 1922, when the present 
Chief, Howard A. Zink, was appointed. The town then 
had a population of 4500 people. 

Palo Alto, with its 15 member board of councilmen, 
has set the pattern for municipal government which has 
been adopted by many other small cities and efforts to 
achieve the success that has been Palo Alto's has been 
aspired by other incorporated communities. 

The conduct of the city's affairs is given to boards of 
three members for the various municipal activities, and 
the city operates its public utilities under a business sys- 
tem, similar to that under which the State Public Utility 
Commission operates, and strict accounting is demanded 
in every phase of this important phase of the town's 
government. 

Public ownership of utilities has been raised to a high 
state of successful conduct. 

Palo Alto owns its water system, its electric plant and 
gas distributing system and it also owns the community 



hospital located on El Camino Real across from the 
Southern Pacific Depot, and adjacent to the University 
of Stanford. It also handles the garbage collection. 

All these utilities gives the best of service and are 
money making projects, profits from water, gas and elec- 
tric has resulted in $5,000,000 being turned into the 
city's general fund. 

The Community Hospital was erected by the city with 
no profit expected. For an innovation that is indeed 
unique in the running of a hospital this ultra conducted 
institution has been so successful that the city is able, 
and does, give any resident of Palo Alto who has resided 
in the city for six months or more a $2.50 a day reduction 
in the hospital charges, if he has to be hospitalized. It is 
a fact the hospital makes money, but any sums over the 
cost of its operation is set aside in a reserve fund for 
enlargement of the plant and adding of equipment. 

It is staffed by high class doctors and has a force of 18 
trained nurses on its roll of employes. 

The hospital is administered, with the sanitary in- 
spectors, full time health officer and health department, 
the Police and Fire'Departments, by the Board of Safety," 
now comprised of Councilmen George Carey, David 
Faville and Col. John Duckworth. The latter a retired 
army officer. 

Councilman Thoit, who served as mayor in 1913, 1914 
and 1920 — the present Mayor is J. Byron Blois — has 
contributed his share to making Palo Alto the excellently 
fioverned city it is today. He has taken the lead in having 
all the many progressive ideas adopted, including those 
referred to above, which has singled it out as a city that 
gives its residents a place to reside in, with men and 
women, elected by the people, giving their time, talents 
and energy to the end they may have many of the necessi- 
ties of life and at low cost. The city tax rate in Palo Alto 
is $1 per $100. That's the proof a city can be operated as 
a private business can be operated if you have the right 
officials in the driver's seat. 

Councilman Thoit, since he disposed of his shoe business, 
spends his time in his office in the Thoit Block, on Uni- 
versity Avenue, and today enjoys the city office he has 
held with such high honor, for nearly two generations with 
the same enthusiasm he had when elected the first time 
in 1909.

San Mateo to Have Fine Police Offices 



Well it looks like Chief Robert O'Brien of San Mateo 

; going to have as fine a police headquarters as will be 

Found in this portion of the country. At a recent city 

Uection the voters gave a fine majority to a bond issue 

M $60,000 for reconstructing the present headquarters. 




Chief Robert O'Brien 

, The building where the Police Department for the past 
|few years has transacted its business was formerly a city 
hall, and during the war years housed various agencies 
having to do with the operation of that war. There are 
Vaults formerly used by city officials and the arrangements 
jaf the building lacks many things that make for a smooth 
[working Police Department. 

j When the rebuilding is completed it will have been 
|transformed into a Hall of Justice. 

I The Municipal Court, with a room for juries to de- 
liberate, will have its chambers there. The City Attorney 
;will also be provided with offices. A new jail will re- 
place the present makeshift affair. Accommodations for 
|26 prisoners will be provided. The old one was designed 
(to handle six but is often housed by as many as twelve 
pflFenders. 

Elevators will carry passengers to the top floor. 

There will be installed a squad room for 54 men, the 
jstrength of the Department is now 32. 
I A well equipped Bureau of Identification will be an- 
other feature. There will be a law library for use of 
members of the Department. There will be an up to date 
photograph gallery. 

Offices for the Chief, Inspector Tom Connors and 
Captain Martin McDonald, will be provided. 

A state teletype will be installed and a new short wave 
142 foot tower will be erected on the roof of the building. 

In the basement with an area of 50 by 100 feet there 
will be a gymnasium and indoor shooting range and some- 
thing that is near and dear to the heart of Chief O'Brien, 
a recreational center for the boys. 



In this center will be punching bags, pool tables, ping 
pong tables, showers and other things that young boys 
enjoy. The activities of these juveniles will be under the 
supervision of a member of the San Mateo Police De- 
partment. The Center will be able to care for 150 boys. 
There are now over 100 boys who are being made fine 
citizens by Chief O'Brien and his force of officers. 

Working with the school authorities and other or- 
ganizations interested in the proper guidance of juveniles. 
Chief O'Brien has ever since he took over the command of 
the Police Department carried on the most constructive 
work along these lines. He has a kindly and understand- 
ing way in approaching and handling youth who get a 
little out of line, and instead of making them sore at 
officials he makes friends of these boys. 

On June 3 140 members of the Junior Traffic Patrol 
are being given a big day. A half holiday will be declared 
in the schools of San Mateo and the 140 boys will par- 
ticipate in a field day. There will be a parade with bands 
and everything that makes this great American institu- 
tion so enjoyable. 

The Rotary Club has had made three trophy cups that 
will be given the winners of first, second and third places 
in the field day. San Mateo Lodge of Elks is under-

BURLINGAME'S POLICE DEPARTMENT 



II 



Two years ago on March 5, R. C. (Jack) Theuer was 
appointed Chief of Police of Burhngame, following the 
retirement of veteran Chief John J. Harper. Since that 
date Burlingame has increased in population, having to- 
day some 23,000 people and it has also grown in area. 
Two tracts have been annexed to the city — the Ray tract 
and Burlingame Manor. The latter is made up of 500 
new homes, and the former will have half that number 
at least when the building program is completed. That 
means a lot of new people figuring three to a family 
occupied house. 

Because of this added residential property to the al- 
ready closely built up northern end of Burlingame there 
is a move to have the Fire Department open up an addi- 
tional station. It is Chief Theuer's hopes that arrange- 
ments can be made to include quarters for an outside 



cycles have staggered hours and no one can depend on 
where it will be at a certain hour of the day. This has 
caused drivers to keep within the law in their driving. 

Another idea is installing signals along Burlingame 
Avenue. Two streets between Broadway and Burlingame 
have been made one-way streets, and the Chief is working 
on another one. This he argues is necessary because of 
the narrowness of the streets that connect these two 
business areas. 

Burlingame has installed parking meters — 740 of them. 
He has one man detail to service and make collections. 
He had adopted plans of handling parking law violators 
originated by Chief Melvin Flohr of Santa Rosa and 
Chief Frank Kelly of San Rafael. This plan calls for 
assigning by Municipal Judge Alfred Branson to the

R. Hinterman, J. Kennedy, Sergeant Jack Price, Officer W. Kilbourne, Lieutenant Lawrence Furio. 



Station for his Police Department, properly staffed by 
experienced officers and connected by two-way radio. 

Chief Theuer has seen his force of officers increase since 
he took over, from 18 to 23. Business for the Department 
is also growing and already the splendid police head- 
quarters are too small. He plans to get the okeh of the 
city council to add a second story to the present building. 

The members of the Burlingame Police Department 
have had a $25 per month raise since Chief Theuer took 
over and there are fine prospects for a further raise the 
coming fiscal year. 

In meeting the traffic problem the Chief has introduced 
several ideas to curb accidents. He has in addition to 
two motorcycle riders, a patrol car cruising throughout 
the congested area of the city. This car as do the motor-

Chief of Police Louis Belloni of South San Francisco 
las for years been faced with one of the most challenging 
raffic problems of any city, large or small, of the Bay area. 

The Bayshore Highway, an auxiliary to Highway 101 
lasses through the eastern side of the industrial city. 



\fay-}une. 1947 POLICE AND PEACE OFFICERS' JOURNAL Page 15 

CHIEF BELLONI OF SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO 




Chief Louis Belloni 

3ver this roadway each month pass thousands upon thou- 
ands of automobiles. A large part of this load is made 
ip of commuters from Peninsula points as far south as 
ian Jose, and at the peak morning and evening hours 
he flow of traffic is ternfic. Then the highway carries 
intold numbers of cars going and coming from Southern 

alifornia points. It is a faster highway than El Camino 
leal, the top Route 101, which has a restricted speed 
imit from San Jose of 35 miles per hour. 

This great array of automobiles is further augmented 
)y the large number of cars used in bringing workers 
:o the many industrial plants that are ever increasing in 
his booming little city. 

I With this heavy traffic there naturally is an ever present 
lazard from accidents. It calls for the continual alertness 
)f Chief Belloni and his force of officers to hold down 
:hese accidents. The efforts of South San Francisco's 
Police Department have paid off. For Chief Belloni won 
a first place safety award for saving lives during the 
palendar year 1946. His was one of four other California 

Iities which tied for the top honors in the 10,000 popu' 
ation classification, the others being Emeryville, Marys- 
'ille and Santa Paula. This quartet for cities under the 
:en thousand mark registered five less deaths from auto- 
nobile accidents over the previous year. If this record up 
o date this year is maintained for the balance of 1947, 
50uth San Francisco promises to be in the lead of other 
dties. So far this year three deaths by traffic have been 
eported. 



In 1946 Chief Belloni and his department won top 
honors for safety for pedestrians. 

The award this year was made at a luncheon at the 
Palace Hotel on May 9, and was presented by Edwin 
Wetmore, managing Director of the California Safety 
Council. 

South San Francisco residents contribute a great num- 
ber of cars to the outside traffic. The city has grown to 
a population of 18,000, and has increased in area of ten 
square .miles. 

No other small city equals South San Francisco for 
building. 

The town now extends across the El Camino Real to 
the north of the National Cemetery. For 1946 there 
were 5 39 business and residential buildings erected. Nearly 
500 of these were for homes for new comers to the area. 
The permits call for the expenditure of $4,193,127. 

South San Francisco now has jurisdiction of Mills 
Field, the airports of the United Airways and Pan- 
American Airways and the old Belair project which is 
now a landing field. The men and women employed at 
these airports together with those assigned to the Coast 
Guard furnish many residents for South San Francisco. 

New industries are continually coming into the city, 
adding to the great array that have found success there

PISTOL POINTING 



By J, Ross DUNNIGAN 

Noted Pistol Expert, holder of many records, and employed in the Park Service of the city, will contribute an article in each issue of 

the Journal on the San Francisco Police Pistol Range. 



As per usual Sunday, April 19, 1947, dawned as 
bright and as cheerful as a new silver dollar. Birds were 
singing and the sun was helping the buds burst into bloom 
— in other words, it was one swell day to hold the pistol 
matches at the San Francisco Police Range. This range 
has been particularly fortunate in that ever since its open- 
ing in July of 1944 there has not been one day of rain 
to mar the shooting. True, it's been pretty cold on some 
of those dreary winter days but old Jupe Pluvious has 
never been around to bother the gunslingers. Sunday also 
marks the biggest day the range ever had, excepting the 
Pacific States Championship Matches, with a total regis- 
tration of 241 shooters. And that's a mob to handle, 
believe you me. There were shooters from San Diego, 
Bakersfield, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Truckee and all 
points of the compass from around the bay area. 

The Hi-way Patrol Gang were again well represented 
with many of them traveling a long ways to get here. 
Ken Kolb drives way down from Soda Springs; "Cap" 
Jacobs hikes from Woodland; Fred Leber ambles over 
from Richmond; Jim Brewer comes from Sacramento; and 
Dave Zebo just hops over from the Golden Gate Bridge. 
Those boys sure must like their shooting. 

There were six relays on the Camp Perry Match was 
a registration of 237 shooters and the same number of 
relays and shooters were lined up for the Individual 
Center Fire Match. Five relays is getting to be the usual 
nowadays, but six is getting too awful. 

By the time this article breaks into print the trout 
season will be in full swing. This is the season of the 
)-ear when these little fish make the darndest liars out of 
otherwise believable guys. Maybe you know some of 
'em who tell you about the big one that got away? 

And speaking of trout there is a newly discovered 
species called the Pieute trout and is found only in the 
little streams of Fish 'Valley, a remote region in Alpine 




County east of the Sierra Divide and not too far above 

Sonora Pass. It is a specie of the cut-throat trout but 

the Fish 6? Game Commission have forbidden fishing in 
that area to insure the survival of the fish. 



And did you get a gander at the new emblems on the 
backs of the San Francisco Police Reserve Motorcycle 
Unit? Boy, or boy, you should see them in their new 
outfits. Dark blue uniforms with a big white circle on 
the back of their shirts that looks as though you have had 
one too many a see a flock of moons. 

Some of the newer shooters viz: Joe Benson, Jack 
Baker, Bill Mahood, J. Noonan, Pedro Tapia, Ted Tieman, 
J. Smith, Jr., and Doc Smis were having a tough time of 
it and suffering from a bit of stage fright at the same 
time. Keep at it boys, that butterfly feeling in the 
stomach will soon pass away, then you'll feel right at 
home on the range. 

For those of you who shoot skeet here's a bit of good 
news. The Great Eastern Championships and National 
Telegraphic Team Championship, suspended during the 
war, will be revived this year at the famous Lordship. 
Conn., shooting grounds of the Remington Club. The 
dates have been set as June 20, 21 and 22. This year's 
renewal of skeet 's famous classic will find many of the 
old timers blazing away at the elusive targets and com- 
peting with many newcomers who received their intro- 
duction to skeet while in the service. 

Then there's our old friend, Adolph Buck, shooting 
under the colors of the San Mateo Sheriff's Office, who 
walked away with the top score in the aggregate match on 
Sunday, thus duplicating his feat of January when he did 
just the same thing. Look out, Dolph, those other hot- 
shots are out to dump you off that pedestal in the May 
matches. Many of the boys in the master class were very, 
very sorry (?) when he had gun trouble in the .45 match 
and finished about last with a 149. Good thing it doesn't 
coimt in the aggregate scores. 

We have been given to understand that Lake Merced 
stands a good chance of being further stocked with trout 
by the Fish &? Game Commission. A trout in that water 
will be twice the size of a trout taken from a wild stream, 
both fish being the same age. Just imagine, trout fishing 
right at the front door. Hot diggity-dog. 

Have you ever noticed at the matches when any 
the boys are asked "how yuh doin'?" they will invariable 
say "lousy" or "not so hot" or some unprintable phr 
— but never saying how well they really are. We would 
like to know the answer but so far have been unable to 
come up with it. Maybe you can help us. 

Wit}\ the amount of foreign guns and ammunition 
flooding the market now via the returning ex-GI's, many 
of the states have passed laws prohibiting the shooting 
of incendiary, armor-piercing and tracer bullets. These 
bullets are very inaccurate, are poor killers of game and 
very often have been the cause of setting brush fires when 
used in the open fields. So if you have any foreign

Baithdges be sure of what you are shooting before you 

"nil the trigger. 

John Butler, Police Reserve of San Francisco, was 
laving a tough time at the shoot that April Sunday — 
Jther he was shivering with the coolness or was using a 
kotgun because one of the targets he saw was definitely 
f a shotgun pattern. 

' The ruffed grouse has a very restricted range in Cali- 
rnia and does not figure importantly as a game species 
ir this reason, and because of its small numbers. The 
!inge of this bird is in the very northeastern tip of Cali- 
bmia. Humboldt, Del Norte, Trinity and a small part 
If Mendocino county are the only spots there birds will 
!e found in the state. 

' Many of San Francisco's police officers did mighty well 
br themselves last year in the pistol racket as will readily 

, le seen by looking over the new NRA classification book 
list issued last month. Karl Schaugaard and Jack Ahern 
leing right up there among the big boys. And of course, 
tiarry Reeves, the Detroit police officer, was tops for 
he whole United States. 

Then at the range was a very interested visitor — and 
nother police officer in the personage of John Cksmmers

The Oakland Police and Fire Department Matches 
On Easter Sunday the Oakland crew took their targets 
out of the moth balls and with a bright sun shining pro- 
ceeded to give those that were at the matches a very nice 
day of shooting. Many complained that there were too 
many eggs laid but our observation was that all the 150 
w^ho were there had a swell time. The Boreneman boys 
from up Sacramento way, stole the show with their 
whiskers they were sporting in celebration of the days 
of "49 — or was it alfalfa week? . . . Sometime during the 
course of the day the manual mechanism that turned the 
targets broke so they were pulled by a fence rope affair 
then some of the smart wags found that the timid and 
rapid targets took considerable more than the 20 and 
10 seconds to make a complete turn and so took their 
time accordingly. . . . Welsey Lim, one of China's sone,

Two of Chief Collins Boys arc Now Judges 



Chief C. L. Collins, who has completed 34 years as marked every case brought before him made his selection 
a member of the Redwood City Police Department, 29 to the new post assured, 
of which have been as its commander, has a distinction (Continued on page 60)

Chief C. L. Collins 

which he believes no other Chief of Police in this state 
can boast of. 

There are two former members of his Police Department 
who today are members of the judiciary of the county; 
one a justice of the peace and the other a judge of the 
city court. 

They are Justice of the Peace Edward I. McAuliffe 
and City Judge W. H. Thorpe. 

Judge McAuliife was born in San Francisco, the son 
of a well known champion boxer, Joe McAuliffe. When 
three years of age he was brought to Redwood City by 
his family. That was in 1902. He got himself an educa- 
tion in the Redwood City schools, and in 1921 became 
a police officer in his adopted city. He remained on the 
force until 1927 when he was appointed to fill a vacancy 
as a city judge. Two years later he got an additional 
judgeship when he was made Justice of the Peace for 
the Redwood City Township. 

He studied law in the Sequoia High School night classes 
and was admitted in 1934 to practice after four years 
of study. 

Last year it was decided there should be a full time 
Judge in Township 3, and one who could handle certain 
cases from the entire county. Judge McAuliffe was put 
forth as a candidate and in the election last year he was 
swept into office.

kind, his knowledge of the law and the fairness that

jjSan Carlos Police Nab Three Burglar Mobs 



I San Carlos, the fastest growing little city in home build- 

■_' in this northern area of the state, has finished a year of 

instruction which totalled $1,773,000. Building permits 

ting issued during 1946 for 170 residences. 

Many new people have come to San Carlos to live, and 




Chief Edward Wheeler 
c only Police Chief San Carlos has had since it was incorporated 
: 22 years ago. We know of no other police executive who 
can equal this record. 

rnore are seeking entrance if they can solve the housing 
shortage. Many small industries have carried on a boom 
on land east of the Southern Pacific tracks, and today 
ilOOO people arc employed by these concerns. 

For 22 years, Chief Edward Wheeler — San Carles' 
jfirst and only Chief of Police — has given the booming little 
bity the tops in law enforcement. Few crimes have oc- 
sTured there since the town was incorporated. But it seems 
the gents who seek a livelihood by various forms of lar- 
teny believed the prosperity of the town with its increased 
population would be a good field to build up their bank 
rolls. In fact three gangs felt so sure they could dart into 
the town, rob some of the more pretentious business places 
and make a getaway that they put their ideas into action. 

Sad it is for these misguided lads, for eight of them are 
now looking from the inside to the outside, and are all 
enrolled for a course in gunnysack weaving at San Quen- 
tin. 

Lesters Market was entered by three men — a fourth 
acting as a lookout but scrammed when it got hot for the 
Imob and ran over and killed a man. These three burglars 
were rounded up by Chief Wheeler and his men, with the 
I assistance of Sherifi James E. McGrath's efficient crew of 
deputies and members of Redwood City Police Depart- 
ment and other peninsula law enforcement officers. 

Then three other guys felt Carlos Inn would be a swell 
knockover. Business was brisk there as it was at Lester's 



They evidently figured the best way to get the cash was 
to break into the market after nightfall, move the safe, 
load it into a truck they had handy for the purpose and 
then go to some hideaway where they could take their own 
sweet time in cracking the money box. Well, some of 
Chief ^V'heeler's boys were cruising around in their two- 
way radio-equipped patrol cars and came to the Carlos 
Inn just as the trio of burglars were moving the safe out 
of the inn. The three culprits were measured for sets of 
handcuffs and taken to the county jail in Reedwood City. 

Then a little later two misguided souls held up the 
Hidden Valley Inn. Again the San Carlos Police Depart- 
ment went into action and with the assistance of neighbor- 
ing departments rounded up the duet of holdup men. This 
pair also had the holdup of the Tonda Club, Redwood 
City, pinned on them. 

There is a moral in these three jobs and we believe that 
moral is that Chief Wheeler with his staff of nine men — 
up to this year there were only seven — don't like people 
breaking into other people's property and trying to steal 
money and stocks, and because San Carlos police officers 
have been trained in all phases of law enforcement they 
know how to go about bringing to the bar of justice those 
who perpetrate such crimes. 

If there is anything in precedents the example of the

BUNCO PAIR LAND IN JAIL 

Bunco artists don't fare very well in San Francisco. 
What with Inspector Charles Iredale and his crew on the 
Bunco and Pickpocket Detail giving the city 24-hour cov- 
erage looking for these easy winners, and who know from 
pictures and records forwarded to the San Francisco 
Police Department of those who seek by such despicable 
means as representing their interest in charity, giving 
sure tips on races and other forms of getting an unsuspect- 
ing man to part with his money, they jerk a goodly share 
of this sort of crook out of circulation. 

Last month they met up with an odd case, one which 
points out to any and all good people to be not afraid 
to get in touch with the police when some man or men 
comes out with a plan to make them rich with no very 
great etfort. 

Lawrence King is a janitor, who by hard work and 
industry had saved up some $4,000. One day after work 
he was accosted by a man who turned out to be Jose 
Canelis of Chihuahua, Mexico, who told Mr. King that 
he was looking for an honest man to dispose of some 
$10,000 a man in Mexico had left to go to some worthy 
poor people and churches. 

He gave Mr. King the old come on talk and finally 
convinced Mr. King that he was just the man. He 
brought into the deal a second man, Francis Medina also 



of Mexico, who knew all about the money to be dis- 
tributed. 

Mr. King said he would be glad to help out and was 
gently told, that to test his honesty he would have to 
produce $10,000 which he would not have to give up. Mr. 
King had no $10,000 but frankly told the would-be bene- 
factors that he did have $4,000. As Mr. Canelis and Mr. 
Medina had just arrived in San Francisco, they determined 
that $4,000 might be all right. Mr. King said he could 
not get the money until the next day, as the bank was 
closed, so his new found would-be friends made a date 
with him at a Fifth Street restaurant the next morning. 

It was most fortunate for Mr. King that the bank was 
not opened when he was approached as the agent for the 
Mexican dogooders. He was so filled with his new found 
activity that he had to tell some one about his good for- 
tune. So he hastened back to the place where he worked 
and got the ear of his boss. His boss was a smart man 
and he listened carefully until Mr. King had told all the 
details of his great experience. Then the boss took the 
wind right out of the sails of Mr. King, by telling him 
he was being made the victim of a bunco trick and that 
they would get in touch immediately with the Police 
Department. 

This was done and Inspectors Iredale, Louis Linss ani 
George Dyer of the Bunco Detail took over. 

They were in the restaurant the next morning, dressed 
like a trio of hayshakers just off the farm. They took 
strategic seats and when Mr. King and his two com- 
panions took a seat in a booth they were ready for 
the payoff. 

They heard a lot of talking, but they did not under- 
stand it, as it was in Spanish. However, all of a sudden 
one of the gents from Mexico got up and started to leave 
the restaurant. He never got to the door for the boys 
covered him, rushing in to get the other gent and all six, 
officers, victim and buncs went to the Hall of Justice. 

It developed that when the buncomen asked for Mr 
King's $4,000 he said you have to show me your $10,00(' 
Then it was that the first man got up to leave, intending 
to get the money which would be placed in a handkerchief 
with Mr. King's $4,000, and then by a little fast work 
another handkerchief, containing nothing but cut paper, 
would be switched. 

The bunco men were somewhat downhearted when 
Inspector Iredale showed them what Mr. King really had 
with him, which was a bunch of cut paper with $100 in 
bilb covering it. 

Canelis and Medina were charged with attempted grand 
theft, and Inspector Iredale says they are wanted in San 
Diego and Los Angeles for bunco jobs.

A gasoline si-rvice station constitutes the only business 
ictivity in Atherton, the ultra residential little city in the 
outhern part of San Mateo County. But in its 830 homes 
here are housed over 2,500 residents who take pride in

keeping up their abodes, whether palatial residences or neat 
modern cottages. 

That the town is sought as a fine place in which to live 
is indicated by the number of building permits issued in 
1046, which totaled $1,059,525 for the erection of houses. 

Atherton has a police department of four men, headed 
liy Chief John E. Farrell. Assis.ant to the Chief is Leroy 
IHubbard, OfScers David Silver and Carl Geilitz. And 
don't think this small police force isn't kept busy. How- 
ever, they have mostly minor crimes to contend with, as 
the records show that major crimes are few and far be- 
tween. When one of large import occurs the department 
is quite capable of handling it and bringing the perpe- 
trator to book. 

Up to May of this year there have been 159 arrests made 
which has cleared up nearly all complaints which for the 
most were of a minor nature. 

In enforcing the laws of the c'ty of Atherton the Folic; 
Radio Patrol cars travelled 65,000 miles during the past 
calendar year. It investigated for outside police depart- 
ments 2185 cases. Telephone calls were 10,839 and over 
the radio — two-way short wave — 1572 calls were regis- 
tered for arrestable offenses and 8000 miscellaneous, such 
as missing persons, failure of street lights, suspicious char- 
acters, and so on. 

Chief Farrell keeps a complete record of all correspond- 
ence, bulletins received by his department from outside 
points, accident reports, traffic law violations and other 
records so necessary to good law enforcement. 

Property losses for the year 1946 was only $2000 of 
which over half was recovered bv the arrest of the thieves. 



There was a double killing in a traffic accident this year 
on El Camino Real and Atherton Avenue. It was the first 
automobile tragedy reported by Atherton for some time. 
Through the good work of the Chief and his assistant the 
hit-run driver of the death car was apprehended. 

But the big headache to Chief Farrell and his men is 
traffic. There are upward of 20,000 cars passing along El 
Camino Real every 24 hours of the day, and at certain 
hours the drivers of some cars are going like mad to get to 
work or home from their work. It is the major job of the 
patrol cars to look after this kind of driver, which Chief 
Farrell states amounts to about ten percent of those using 
the highways. His law enforcement policy has resulted in

689 warnings being issued and he says there were 58 acci- 
dents for the year, 37 of them occuring on El Camino

for speeding and reckless driving. So far this year there

Corona, Riverside County, and Its Chief J. S. Lowery 



Corona, which means crown in the Spanish language, 
is located at the western end of Riverside County. It 
proudly wears its crown as the center of the largest lemon 




Chief Joseph S. Lowery 

growing area in the world, and its title to this top rating 
is added to be the large orchards of other citrus fruits that 
abound in its sloping topography. 

It is a town of some 10,000 people and through it 
passes thousands of automobiles annually to and from 
coast points of Southern California. 



Crime is a scarce thing in Corona. The police records 
show but 37 felony arrests for the past year. This is in 
keeping with the low number of complaints of felonies. 

That traiEc is well controlled is indicated by the fact 
that only 496 citations were issued during the same 
period. 

At the head of the Police Department is Chief Joseph 
S. Lowery. He has eleven men on his force. 

Chief Lowery is a native of Texas, having been born I 
in Dallas November 8, 190J. When he was but seven ' 
years of age he came to California with his parents. He | 
returned to Texas in 1920, then he returned to this state, 
locating in Corona. Until 1928 he operated a service 
station at Sixth and Bell streets. That year he joined the [ 
Police Department. After four years he got the wander- 
lust and returned again to his native state. I 

This time he remained away for only a year and in \ 
1939 he again entered the Corona Police Department. ] 
He was assigned to motorcycle duty and for four years he 
established a fine feputation for traffic law enforcement. 
He became so efficient and popular that he was promoted ^ 
to the rank of Lieutenant and in 1942 he was elevated 
to the rank of Chief. 

He has done everything possible to make his force noted 
for preserving the peace, and he has been very successful 
in this line. He has all his police cars and motorcycles 
equipped with radio and has his own short wave station, 
KRIN. 

Like all cities throughout the nation Corona has had 
its experience in juvenile delinquency. But Chief Lowery 
has met this problem in a mighty constructive and effective

Imannor. He has a Juvenile Detail headed by Lieutenant 
IL. S. Charlesworth designated as the Juvenile Crime 
iPrevention Bureau. 

The Detail has set up in this bureau a number of youths 
before whom all teen age violators are brought for a hear- 
jing and trial. This juvenile court metes out all sentences 



in the case of a guilty finding. The first offenders are 
usually placed on parole. 

The boys have their own bicycle patrol and this method 
of putting responsibilities in the hands of the youths has 
worked out so well that they don't have any mare juvenile

Sunny valets New Police Chief 



May -June, 1947 






Fred Penfold is the new Chief of Sunnyvale, down 
in Santa Clara County. He was appointed to the office 
on January 1. 

It iG a tribute to his personality, backed up by many 
years of law enforcement work, that in Sunnyvale, where 




Chief Fred Penfold 

he never knew a single man or woman before last Decem- 
ber, he was selected to police the little city's 9000 popu- 
lation. He sold himself to the city councilmen who were 
looking for a new man to take over their Police De- 
partment. 

He was born at Fort Morgan, Colorado, in 1906, later 
moving to Boulder, Colorado, where he resided for eight 
years, then going to Fort Lupton, Colorado. It was in 
this later city that he entered on a career of a peace 
officer. He was made a deputy sheriff, a position he held 
for two years when he was made Chief of Police of the 
City. He served three years in this job. 

Next we find him a special agent for the Union Pacific 
Railroad Company, leaving this work in 1941 to become 
Captain of the Guards at Camp Hale. On January 19, 
1943, he enlisted in the navy and was sent to San Fran- 
cisco as a member of the Shore Patrol, and when he was 
discharged on August 19, 1946, he was a Chief Petty 
Officer. 

With his wife, whom he married on January 1, 1928, at 
Fort Lupton, and his two children Kay, 18 and Michael 8, 
he resided in San Francisco until he heard they needed 
a new Chief of Police at Sunnyvale. The family is now 
located there and have been taken into the town's popula- 
tion as if there were old time residents of the community. 

Sunnyvale is a city one mile square, but in that one 
mile square there is crowded more industrial activities 
than you will find in any other section of the country. 

At the peak of the season Libby McNeill Libby employs 
as high as 5000 people and the Schuckl and Co., Inc., 
hire as many as 4500 to process and pack the various 
produce brought in from the farms of the rich surround- 
ing country. 

In addition the '^ooldridge Manufatcuring Co., makers 



of heavy farm and road machinery work 2500 people; 
the Westinghouse Co., which has taken over the pioneer 
Hendry firm goes as high as 600 employees, and the Bowser 
Pump Co., use some 1500. 

There is not room for this vast army of workers in 
Sunnyvale, and over half of them are from outside the 
city. New homes are going up in the city and adjacent 
territory, to accommodate as many as possible of this great 
number of workers . At the present time there are about 
100 homes in the course of construction. 

With all this activity the people getting to work and 
home after the afternoon whistle blows, there are no

Escondido, San Diego County 



May June, 1947 



I 



Escondido, is a Spanish word, meaning "hidden." A 
more appropriate name could not be conjured, as the 
valley is practically surrounded by hills, some gentle and 
rolling; others rugged and high. 




Chief Thomas H. Perkins 

In this valley are many square miles of sun drenched 
lands, producing a wide variety of agricultural products 
in tremendous quantity. 

A few facts on the agricultural products of this fertile 
area will show how prolific it is. 

For instance citrus fruits, principally lemons and Va- 



annually for those who go in for this line of farming. 

Cattle, chiefly purebred Herefords and Black Angus, 
find lush grazing on broad expanses of permanent pasture, 
and alfalfa furnishes the finishing feed for these animals. 

Blooded hogs and thoroughbred horses are also pro- 
duced in abundance, and they bring added hundreds of 
thousands of dollars annually into the pockets of those 
who raise them. 

The city of Escondido is on U. S. Highway 395, and 
is located in northern San Diego County. It is an old 
city, some 15 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean. It 
has an altitude of 750 feet. 

The population of Escondido is around 6500, but it 
has a trade area of over 20,000, who find all the necessities . 
of life on hand and plenty of good recreational features. 

San Diego is about a 40 minute drive, to the southwest. 

Palomar Observatory, home of the world's largest tele- 
scope, is just thirty-five miles to the northeast, atop 
Palomar mountain. This $6,000,000 institution is located 
in a state-owned park and attracts thousands of visitors 
yearly, many of whom pass through Escondido. 

The people of Escondido are a peace loving class and 
they have been fortunate in the absence of any serious 
crimes for a long time. This is largely due to the effective- 
ness of its Police Department, which at the present time 
is operated under the direction of Chief Thomas H. 
Perkins.

tor him in that northern state so he continued his migra- 
tion until he landed at Torrence, Los Angeles county. 

He finally wound up as a member of the Police De- 
partment of Torrence, where he served for eight years. 

Officer Perkins showed he had all the traits of a good 
peace officer, and with the record he built up as a police- 
man in Torrence, he had no trouble in landing the Chief's 
job in Escondido in 1943 when a vacancy occurred in 
that office.

round athlete, Viera won 10 "V" letters in his high school 
days, participated in all major sports and in his three 
years in college was an outstanding football player. 

For three years, 1938 to 1941, he was coach at the 
Hughson High school in Southern California and physical 
director for a year at Lindsay, California. For two years 
after joining the Berkeley police department he directed 
the Junior Traffic Police. He's married and is father of 
a boy of nine. 

Policewoman Mrs. Helen M. Gamba 

Rounding out Berkeley's Outstanding juvenile detail 
on the job daily is Mrs. Helen M. Gamba, 31, University 
of California graduate, former clerk in the Berkeley 
justice of the peace court, mother of a 4'year-old son, 
named to juvenile detail in February, 1944. 

Mrs. Gamba has always been interested in children and 
as student of human behaviour and psychology is par- 
ticularly adapted for the juvenile work. 

Secretary of the juvenile detail is Mrs. Alice Atkinson 
who for 2 1 years has acted in this capacity. As a grand- 
mother her knowledge of youngsters is close to her heart 
and, according to Chief Holstrom, she has been of great 
aid to the juvenile detail over the years.

by John Lirsen, serving under former Chief August 
Vollmer, 27 years ago. 

"Interpretation of the graph, which registers emotional 
reactions of the person under quiz is the key of the effect- 
iveness of the he detector," according to Chief Holstrom 
who adds: 

"Inspector Reidel has brought his knowledge of reading 
the graph to nearly a scientific fact. The graph inter- 
pretation has blocked other police departments in the 
effective use of this mechanical 'mind' which, under an 
expert, forces the truth from unwilling lips. 

"However, the Berkeley police department has placed 
the lie detector at the disposal of all police departments. 
Ours is a cooperative effort. There is no charge made 
for the tests." 

Hardly a day goes by that some California law en- 
forcement agency doesn't ask and get the use of the 
"lie detector." 

The United States army and navy as well as local 
police departments have used the "lie detector" satis- 
factorily. It is even used in civilian matters, according 
to Chief Holstrom. 

Both juvenile delinquency and adult offenses against 
! the law during the past year and during the first months 
I of this year in Berkeley reveal that the efficient force of 
120 members have and are keeping crime in check. 

War Vets Ma1{e Good Officers 

High praise is given returned war veterans now mem- 
bers of the Berkeley police force by Chief Holstrom 
who says: 

"These young men of military experience have a back- 
ground that make for splendid efficiency as police officers. 
Their service in the Berkeley Department since last Oc- 
tober when we recruited all available veterans are out- 
standing. 

"One half of the department's 120 personnel are uni- 
versity graduates and those who hold no university back- 
ground but who served in the armed services have taken 
to a police service training program with enthusiasm. 

"We take just pride in the effectiveness of this training 
program which embraces every member of the force."

Tanforan Well Policed By Chief Maher 



The first racing season at Tanforan since before the 
start of World War II ended in May. Unfinished in 
many respects the pioneer racing plant broke all records 
for attendance and money put through the mutual betting 
machines by the great hordes that were trying to get rich. 




Chief William Maher 

During the racing period there was, as in all races, 
a call for someone in authority to take care of the policing 
of the track — its stables and the patrons who assembled in 
the grandstand and grounds surrounding it. 

The one that naturally called upon to police Tanforan 
was Chief of Police William Maher, whose city of San 
Bruno includes Tanforan. They could not have gotten a 
better man for the job. For during his membership in 
the San Bruno Police Department, for over 21 years, 20 
of these years as head of the police force, he has in addi- 
tion to enforcing the laws in his jurisdiction with courage, 
efficiency and constructiveness, had plenty of experience in 
policing Tanforan. For during the pre war years he looked 
.iftcr this important job with neatness and dispatch. 

This year after a long interlude when the track was 
uE?d as a relocation center and later by the navy he took 
up his added police duties of looking after Tanforan. 

With the record breaking attendance, which naturally 
would bring in a few wrong guys, there were no com- 
plaints of criminal activities at the track or in San Bruno, 
that could be traced to the racing season. 

No pocket picking was reported. Chief Maher given 
full credit for this splendid record to Chief Charles W. 
Dullea of the San Francisco Police Department who de- 
tailed two men each day of racing, from Inspector Charles 
Iredile's Pickpocket Detail. 

Chief Maher said the biggest headache of the meeting 
was handling the thousands of automobiles bringing people 
to the track. Outside of some delays in getting the drivers 
of these vehicles to and from the track, however, there 



were no serious accidents and no deaths from automobile 
accidents. 

He had a force of 50 men, paid by the track manage- 
ment, working under him, and which he disposed around 
the barn area and the grand stand. They got the proper 
training to carry out their duties so that no mixups oc- 
curred for the entire meeting. 

San Bruno is still a growing community and the new 
homes that have been erected during the past year and 
the ones in the course of construction is fast raising the 
town into one of the big cities of the peninsula. 

The Chief and his force of officers are greatly cheered 
by the recovery of Deputy Chief Bedford who was shot 
by one of two killer bandits last year. Deputy Chief 
Bedford is able to be around and hopes to check in with 
the Department one of these days, taking his place with 
the able law enforcement officers of San Bruno where 
he has served with distinction for more than 20 years.

NORTHERN CALIFORNIA 

POLICE COMMUNICATION OFFICERS 

ASSOCIATION 

Merrill LeBouef, President 
A. R. TaggaiRT, SecretaryTreasurer 



Minutes of the Joint Meeting held in Reno,, Nevada, on 
April 26, 1947. 

The Joint Meeting of the Northern California Police 
Communication Officers Association and the California 
Police Radio Association was held in Reno, Nevada. Our 




President Merrill LeBouef. a member of Marysville P. D. 

Host was Arthur Sowle, (Reno Police, and First Vice 
President of APCO. 

Emergency Service Representatives of nine ^Vestern 
States were present. 

Meeting was called to order 10:15 A. M., by Merril 
LeBoeuf, President of the NCPCOA, who called on Art 
Sowle. Art welcomed us all to Nevada and gave an out- 
line of the program he prepared for us during our stay. 

Minutes of the previous meeting were read, corrected, 
and approved. 

The meeting was turned over to Hirschel Calvert, Sec- 
retary of the C.P.R.A. Calvert was batting for Bill Whit- 
ing, President of C.P.R.A. who unfortunately was in the 
hospital recovering from a minor operation. Calvert told 
of the Southern Group's objection to the proposed grant- 
ing of 2482 KCS. a police frequency, by the FCC. to the 
Nevada Scheelite Co. This was in complete accord with 
our own objections. 

Pete Kriedler, (C.H.P., Los Angeles) told about the 
Southern Group's Point to Point voice network being ap- 
proved by the FCC. Control Station to operate on 74.58 
mcs., and the Orange County Repeater on 7318 mps. This 
system will be in operation about June 1, 1947. 

Lieutenant Wm. H. Durham, (L.A.P.D.) and Chair- 
man of the Conference Committee for the 1947 APCO. 
National Conference, gave a very comprehensive and de- 
tailed report on the activities of the various committees who 
are working so hard to make this the outstanding confer- 



ence in APCO history. The report was too lengthy to in- 
clude in our minutes. The August issue of the APCO 
Bulletin will carry the entire program. 

Bill Koch announced the State Division of Forestry has 
adopted the Ten Series Code. Approval was granted by 
this Association for the State Division of Highways to use 
the Ten Series as this is part of a co-ordinated emergency 
service working with the California Highway Patrol. 

George Burton, (Engineering and Frequency Commit- 
tee) reports the following clearance requests: San Mateo 
County Sheriff's Office request clearance on 74.38 MSC 
for a repeater. 

State Department of Corrections, Folsom Prison, now 
operating KSRF on 39,900 KCS. requested clearance to 
install a second crystal in their present transmitter and 
use 39,780 KCS. in the event of a prison break. As there 
are no monitoring facilities on their preseent frequency in 
this area, they wish to operate through the present co- 
ordinated communication system of the California High- 
way Patrol and other Law Enforcement Agencies in this 
area. The Committee recommended clearance for 30,780 
KCS. to be used only in event of a prison break or other 
extreme emergency. Motion by Burton, seconded by 
Naschke. 

Redwood City requests clearance of 155.97 mcs. This 
frequency is used by the San Mateo County Sheriff's Of- 
fice who approve the sharing of this frequency. This is 
part of a VHF co-ordinated Police Communication System 
being deevloped in this area. Motion by Harrington, sec- 
onded by Hossack. All the above requests were approved 
by the members present. 

Calvert suggested the Enginering and Frequency Com- 
mittees of the Northern and Southern Chapters clear 
boundary line frequency requests in the 150 mc. band as one 
group to eliminate any confusion and interference problems 
which may arise in the future. This suggestion was ap- 
proved. 

Telegrams were read from Bill Whiting and Burt Field- 
ing expressing regret on being unable to attend this meet- 
ing. 

Jim Lewis suggested a letter of commendation be sent 
to Frank Walker for his excellent report on diathermy 
interference. 

Discussion regarding the final outcome of our medium 
frequencies for the Emergency Services followed. It was 
the general opinion that no information will be available 
until after the International Conference gets under way in 
Atlantic City. 



May June, 1947

Page 39 



A morion by Art Sowle, seconded by Bill McKiiiley 
that we request two copies from the Burns Bureau regard- 
ing Emergency Service Frequencies the United States will 
request at the International Conference. 

H. W. Ziegler gave an interesting report of his last trip 
East. He received the impression after several talks with 
FCC Officials in Washington that some confusion and 
doubt exists there regarding communication problems in 
California. 

Meeting was recessed for luncheon «hich was held at 

I the El Cortez Hotel. During lunch Art Sowle introduced 

Harry Fletcher, Chief of Police, Reno, Nevada, who gave 

a brief history of Police Communications in Nevada and 

!the Chief certainly went all out in praising Art Sowle's 
work and APCO for the splendid work done in behalf of 
]l Law Enforcement Agencies. Chief of Police J. H. Ashurst 
\. of Pomona, California, praised APCO and the Southern 

[Association for the remarkable progress made in Southern 
California. 
' Meeting resumed at 2:00 P. M. 

Captain Charles Ellison, (Sheriff's Office, Los Angeles, 
;. gave a brief talk concluding with the following remarks, 
j "This is the finest Communications Meeting I ever at- 
tended." 

Captain \Vm. A. Gebenini, (Washington State Police), 
I and President of the Northwest Chapter of APCO, open- 

■ ed the all-important subject of skywave interference on 
; the 30 MC. band. He told of the serious problems existing 
|i in the Northwest due to this interference and submitted a 
|i proposed frequency allocation for the Northwest. Here is 
\ one of our most vital problems on the entire Pacific Coast. 
I" Stations between 2,000 and 2,600 miles present solid sky- 

■ wave interference during all daylight hours. Obviously' 
I this condition must occur in reverse on the Atlantic Coast. 

George Burton read a letter from Dan Noble of Panel 
13, R'l PB., regarding the formation of committees 
} throughout the Nation to, study and present information so 
I a proper block allocation plan can be submitted to the 
i' FCC on or before August 1, 19+7. This does not give the 
1 eleven Western States sufficient time to complete this im- 
'iportant project. It was felt that the seriousness and im- 
; portance of this interference problem should be thoroughly 
> discussed and settled at the APCO National Conference 
I to be held in August at Los Angeles, therefore on motion 
fby Chas. Simpson and seconded by Bill OcKinley, that a 
[resolution be drafted requesting APCO to contact the 
i'FCC regarding postponement of the August 1, 1947 dead- 
-line to September 15, 1947. Unanimously approved by the 
jmembers. 

I FCC Public Notices No. 7083 and No. 7103 were read 
i and discussed. A motion by McKinley, seconded by Bud 
Whitman, that the entire western group attending this 
meeting go on record as objecting to the lack of sufficient 
time for any AVest Coast Agency to file an appeal with the 
I FCC regarding the various Public Notices issued periodi- 
jcally. 

Rox Penlon, (Aerial Engineer) furnished some interest- 
ng data regarding the CAA and FCC regulations per- 
:aining to tower lighting and maintenance. 



Sam Combs demonstrated the new facsimile units his 
company will market. 

The Northern and Southern California Groups discus- 
sed our State Communications Bill No. 908 which is now 
before the Legislature. Both Associations approve in sub- 
stance, Bill No. 908, and contents thereof as long as it does 
not neglect the individual or sovereign rights of any City 
or County. 

F"orty-seven men responsible for Emergency Service 
Radio Communications in nine Western States were pres- 
ent. This Conference resulted in nine States functioning 
on communication problems as one unit and will continue 
to do so in the future. 

All present felt that Art Sowle working under adverse 
circumstances prepared and presented one of the finest 
meetings and entertainment that was ever held in the 
West.

El Cajon, San Diego County 



May June, 1947 



The little city of El Cajon, is situated in a valley of 
nearly 50,000 acres, some 15 miles east of San Diego. The 
valley, surrounded by low rolling hills was first entered by 
Franciscans in 1821, and in 1886 its fertility became rec- 
ognized and since then it has progressed to one of the rich- 
est in Southern California. 




Chief Rex Huffman 

Grapes for wine and table use are the principal agricul- 
tural products, but it had become famed for its avocados, 
lemons and oranges. Its delicious fruits cover a wide 
range, prominent among them being plums, apricots, pom- 
egranates, pears, persimmons, loquats, guavas and various 
berries. Too, vegetables play an important part in its 
products. Many dairy farms are found in the valley. 

El Cajon has a population of an estimated 4,000 people 
and there are some 15,000 inhabitants in the valley, all 
engaged in prosperous farming. 

It has a shopping district second to none in the state 
and the merchants and Chamber of Commerce have pro- 
vided plenty of good parking space for the shoppers and 
visitors with no parking meters to add to their cost of 
living. Parking space is free.

perienced and efficient officers of the law. 

Rex Huffman is Chief of Police of El Cajon in San 
Diego County. He was born in San Diego, May 31, 1917, 
shortly after the start of World War I.

live years. Shortly after he was appointed Chief of Police 
of EI Cajon, which at that time consisted of one man be- 
sides himself. Today he has four officers. Mrs. Catherine 
Huflfman, the Chief's wife is a member of the department, 
serving as matron. 

The police department is kept busy mostly by looking 
after minor infractions of the law, regulating traffic and 
giving co-operation to outside police departments. 

Mayor Claude Kenyon, Police Commissioner H. Cran- 
dall and Police Judge Edwin Thatcher all join in giving 
the police department their full support, and they are right- 
fully pleased with the record the department has made 
under Chief Huffman.

CHIEF BLACKMORE OF SAN JOSE 

(Continued from page 9) 
Detective Julian Coble and Carter they surrounded the 
house the rapist was holding out against the law, with 
his wife and two children. He had fired several shot gun 
blasts out the windows and as Coble and Blackmore ap- 
proached a door to a room that the rapist was in, Coble 
heard a clicking of a gun and gave the warning to Black- 
more in time for him to get away from the door, diving 
off the porch as a charge of the shotgun tore through 
the door. 

After some three hours they finally got their man, Vail 
Silvadore to surrender. He was tried and sent to San 
Quentin. 

Probably the most miraculous escape was that when he 
was riding with Captain of Detectives B. L. Collins, in 
a police car on an emergency call, the police automobile 
was hit by another car. The police car turned over five 
times before it stopped its flight. Though Captain Collins 
and Detective Blackmore were badly shaken up they 
received no more injuries than bruises and cuts. 

San Jose with a population of some 80,000 is growing, 
as all California cities are growing. Its six square mile 
area will before long be expanded to 10 square miles. 
One thousand homes are under construction at this time, 
and it is not hard to vision the increasing of the Police 
Department's personnel from 100 to 150 in the next 
five years. 

A survey is being completed looking to revamping 
the patrol system in San Jose.

This month, Chief Blackmore has put into effect a 
move that calls for periodic police training schools for 
men under five years service. It is his theory that only 
by such instructions can ambitious young men fit them- 
selves for the professional status law enforcement officers 
are entitled to. 

Another innovation he is sponsoring is to reward mem- 
bers of his department for outstanding work. Under 
this setup the Chief's salary is raised to $532 per month; 
Assistant Chief $403; Captains $381; Sergeants and 
Detectives $341; Patrolmen $273. 

Chief Blackmore points with pride that top crimes 
have not increased in his jurisdiction, and that such rob- 
beries and burglaries that have occured have been cleaned 
up by arrests by the members of his Police Department. 

He says any success he has had as a member of his 
native city's Police Department is largely due to the help 
and cooperation he has received from Police Departments 
of other towns and cities, large and small. He is particu- 
larly appreciative of the help Chief Charles W. Dullea 
of the San Francisco Department has rendered him by 
permitting the entrance of two of his officers into their 
Police Academy. 

Chief Blackmore married Ruby Lee RoUens in 1928 
and the couple has two children, a daughter, Raelene, 
and a son, Charles.

Detective Bureau. He was night Captain at the time 
of his resignation. 

Sheriff Hombuckle, with his background of experience 
in the work of law enforcement, his course in police ad- 
ministration in the San Jose State College, and his gradu- 
ating in 1939 from the FBI Police Academy is well forti- 
fied to give the people of his adopted county the utmost 
in crime prevention and the apprehension of criminals 
who break the laws of the country. 

Still under forty years of age, he has learned a lot 
about enforcing the laws and the ways of crooks, yet 
he is an easy man to meet, and he has the happy faculty 
of making friends of the worth while kind. He should 
go a long way in his new and important post, and he 
has the many law enforcement officers around the Bay 
area who have had occasion to work with him on various 
cases all predicting that he will be in there as Sheriff for 
a long time.

POLICE AND PEACE OFFICERS' JOURNAL 



May June, 1947 



Sanger and its Police Department 



Sanger, founded nearly 60 years ago, is located along 
the south-eastern boundary of Fresno County in the fam- 
ous San Joaquin Valley. It has grown since 1888 in 
population. At the outset when those pioneers who saw 
in the fertile soil of this area, and its even climate a fine 
location for people who longed for a place to make their 





World War I. He was drill sergeant in his outfit. He 
served so well that after the war's end he was assigned to 
the Provost Marshal's office as a military policeman and 
was sent to various points throughout the United States. 

He was discharged from the Army on a St. Patrick's 
day at the Presidio in San Francisco. 

He joined the Sanger Police Department on August 6, 
1934 and so well did he serve as a peace officer that last 
November 10 he was elevated to the Chief's position. 

The members of the Sanger Police Department are: 

Assistant Chief Willis Case. 

Officer J. F. Stillwell, who also serves as Chief of the 
Fire Department. 

Officers Robert Fleetwood, S. D. Singleton and Lester 
Bollinger. 

Special Officer Ruben Bordus. 

Special Officer C. D. Deasers, who is also Constable 
of Sanger Township.

homes, it has increased not only in population, but in 
agricultural importance. Incorporated as a city in 1911 
it has drawn a fine class of people to its confines and today 
42 1 7 people have their residence there. 

To the man with experience in farming it has a strong 
appeal, for with plenty of water, rich soil, good roads 
and railway transportation it has developed into a pros- 
perous community. Grapes, table wine and raisins, form 
the leading crop. But citrus fruits, lemons and oranges, 
grain, vegetables, melons and cotton bring in added hun- 
dreds of thousands of dollars to the growers each year. 

To those who like outdoor recreational pursuits there 
is plenty of fishing aftd hunting in the mountains to the 
tast of the little city, its close proximity to the Kings 
River offers a swell place for sport angling. 

As Mayor C. E. Giles said recently about his home 
town of Sanger: 

"In the past five or six years, Sanger has made great 
progress, even under adverse conditions, which is due to 
the progressive citizens who take pride in their city and 
homes, and take pains to see that the latter are well 
kept up." 

Sanger is practically free from crime. This pleasant 
circumstance is due to the efficiency of its Police Depart- 
ment. Today it has a force of seven men headed by Chief 
Sam C. O'Neal. 

Chief O'Neal has lived in Sanger for the past 50 years 
with the exception of the time he served with the 21st 
Infantry — known as the McKinley Regiment — during

POLICE AND PEACE OFFICERS' JOURNAL 

Daly City's New Police Chief 



Page 51 



Daly City, the first incorporated town after leaving 
San Francisco on El Camino Real, isn't much of a commu- 
nity for industry, but it houses a lot of people who work 
in factories and other big business concerns in the sur- 
rounding country. 

Today it has a population of some 14,000 people living 
in its city limits, which is roughly about four square miles. 

The Chief of Police states most convincingly that when 
the present building boom is completed there won't be a 
lot left on which to erect a home. 

\Vhile Daly City has no big industrial center, it does 
handle a lot of traffic along the Real, and it is the center 
of much street car and bus service — all night schedules be- 
ing maintained from San Francisco to the city — and with 
this traffic, and the fact there are 25 taverns in the town 
and the gathering of shoppers in the up-to-date stores, 
gives the Police Department plenty of work. 

Daly City is noted for being the home of the largest 
auto camp, the Mission Auto Court with 140 or more 
units which are continually filled with travelers bound for 
San Francisco and northern points of the state. 

Chief of Police VV. W. Sunderland is the new head of 
the Police Department. He has been a member of the 
police force since 1929. He is a native of Illinois, but he 
enlisted in the navy during World War I. and was dis- 
charged in San Francisco. He settled here and then took 
up residence in Daly City. In World War II he again 
enlisted in the navy and was a Chief Specialist with the 
Shore Patrol, being one of the 150 men detailed to riding 
trains in an out of San Francisco. He was released from 
the service in April, 1946, for disability, having been the 
victim of a back injury that hospitalized him for some 
time. He re-entered the police department following his 
discharge from the hospital. 

Last October he was given a temporary appointment as 
Chief of Police and he took the examination introduced 
by the city for the position ( Daly City is one of the few 
cities of the state that has a civil service Chief of Police 
selected from the ranks) and passed, being first on the list. 
He was given a permanent appointment on February 1st 
of this year. 

When he joined the department there were four men 
with the Chief policing the town. Today Chief Sunder- 
land has 15 men, the number first being increased in 1945 
to 1 1 men and last year to the present strength. 

There are four sergeants in the department. Three 
radio-equipped patrol cars are doing 24 hours service and 
one motorcycle heads the traffic law enforcement work. 
On July 1 Chief Sunderland will get another motorcycle. 

Chief Sunderland is a great hand for co-operation with 
outside fellow officers, and he says that the co-operation 
he gets from the San Francisco Police Department and 
Sheriff James J. McGrath of San Mateo County is some- 
thing he cannot praise too highly. Both, he says, respond 
to any calls he makes 100 per cent and what few crimes 
occur in the little residential city are quickly solved 



through this spirit of helpfulness of his neighboring peace 
officers. 

Chief Sunderland who has served under three chiefs — 
the late Chief Jack Doran was in charge when he joined 
in 1929 — is active in American Legion activities, the 
Eagles and is a member of Crocker Lodge, F. & A. M. 
He is also a member of the Bay Counties' Peace Officers' 
Association, the Peninsula Police Officers' Association and 
the San Mateo Police Executives* Association. 

With a civil service rating he will be spared some of the 
unpleasant experiences of some of his predecessors when 
they were subject to municipal election results for their 
job.

PALO ALTO POLICE DEPARTMENT 

(Continued from page 11) 

Park, Mountain View, Atherton, and Stanford Univer- 
sity. Until Redwood City installed its broadcasting sta- 
tion Palo Alto handled the radio calls for that city also. 
Eighteen Palo Alto cars with two-way radio and 24 cars, 
some one-way, others two-way, are served by the P.A.P.D. 
station. 

While the radio technician with first class papers is a 
civilian at the present time, there will be a change to have 
a capable man to be a member of the Police Department, 
with the proper papers from the FCC to take over the 
operating of Palo Alto's police short wave station. 

Chief Zink came to Palo Alto in 1921 from Idaho, 
where he had been following his professional career as a 
chemical engineer. Ill health of his wife brought him to 
this then little city. He was prevailed upon to join the 
Police Department and after a few months a move was 
started to oust Palo Alto's first and only Chief of Police 
since it was put under charter in 1909. As Palo Alto 
is different in many ways in the conduct of its municipal 
government it is different in its governing body, the city 
council. This body consists of 15 members elected for 
six year terms. Each year a mayor is selected from this 
group and they divide up the city's business into boards. 
One, the Safety Board, which has to do with health, 
policing, fire department and such other matters of public 
safety, is three men who direct the Police Department 
and select the Chief and are responsible for its success 
or failure.

When the move to oust Chief Noble started there was 
some uncertainty about a successor but the board settled 
on Patrolman Zink because he had not become embroiled 
in the ouster matter, and showed great potentialities as 
a Police oflScer. So in May, 1922, he was made acting 
Chief, and on July 7 was made permanent Chief, with 
dvil service standing. 

The Department had been busted up by the row over 
the dismissal of Chief Noble and when Chief Zink took 
over he had but four men of the city's total of ten police- 
men left. Of this original force of five men and the Chief, 
there are still two in active service with the Chief in the 
Police Department. They are: 

Superintendent of Identification Dale Atwood and Of- 
ficer Andrew G. Frit:. 

It did not take long after taking over his new duties 
until the Palo Alto Police Department was increased to 
15 members, to police the city's 10,000 people. 

Today he has thirty men and women who give the 
present population and greatly expanded area of Palo 
Alto as fine police protection as one will find in any 
community in these United States. 

The roster of the Police Department is as follows: 

Superintendent of Identification Dale D. Atwood, Lieu- 
tenant Virgil W. Carison, Traffic Sergeant Fred H. Glan- 
villc. Sergeants Clarence Anderson, Arthur L. Besemer, 
Inspector Guy O. Wathen, Welfare Officers Betty J.

Virgil W. Carison, who left the Police Department to 
do his bit for winning the war. He returned to police 
service on July 7, 1946. During his absence he saw plenty 
of service. He was Advocate Marshal in Calcutta, India, 
during the uprising that caused plenty of action and 
worry abroad. 

Palo Alto installed last January 800 parking meters 
for a trial. On May 13 the voters had the question of 
their retention on the ballot at the municipal election, 
and it carried by a healthy margin.

ATHERTON'S POLICE DEPARTMENT 

I Conunikcd from page 2t ) 
have been over 125 drivers taken into custody. So it might 
well be a fjood thing to slow down a bit in going through 
Atherton. 

Chief Farrell has been in the law enforcing business a 
good many years and he is recognized by the peace officers 
of this state for his knowledge of police procedure. He is 
very active in the State Peace Officers' Association, the 
"Bay Counties' Peace Officers' Association and the Penin- 
sula Peace Officers' Association of which he is a charter 
I member. He is also wholeheartedly interested in the San 
Mateo County Police Executives' Association. His advice 
i> sought by all these organizations on matters having to 
do with police af]Fairs, and he is found on many important 
committees of the State and Hay Area Associations. 

He has as his chief assistant officer Leroy Hubbard who 
I joined the department on July 29, 1930. 

He was born in Oakland and came to Atherton over 
25 years ago, following the sheet metal and plumbing trade 
until he entered the police department. 

He is now treasurer of the Peninsula Peace Officer's 

lAssociation, having been selected to fill the position when 

Chief Theuer of Burlingame, who had served from the 

\start of the organization, and who had to retire from the 

ii job because of press of business in his present job. 
Officer Hubbard served as vice president of the Penin- 
scla Peace Officers' Association for the year 1936-1937 
ijiand the year following was elected president. 
I He is an active and effective member of the Bay Coun- 
ties' Identification Association and never misses one of 
their monthly meetings.

Two factors make the job of those roving swindlers 
easy. One is the something-for-nothing instinct of the 
victims. They are over-eager to get something for less 
than its actual worth, and so promises of that sort are 
sweet music to their receptive ears. 

The other is a naive trust in smooth-talking strangers. 
Permanently established dealers of known identity who 
operate the year-around in the community and participate 
in its affairs and contribute to its activities are entitled to 
first consideration by consumers. They also are much 
safer people with whom to deal.

r.T ary when a ire starts. 'VvTicn this alarm is 

ube ire departmcm iterator then sends to HiUs- 

- ineh die location of the ire if any help is needed. 

lias mformanon is dien broadcast by HiDsborough sta- 



tion. Some weeks ago there was a big lumber yard fire 
m San Mateo. The fireman in charge of the first apparatus 
to shoa' up at the fire saw that it was a dangerous one. 
He picked up his radio transmitter and called Hillsborou^ 
and told the officer in charge to order a third alarm. 
When the Fire Chief responded to this call he saw more 
help was needed so he took his transmitter and put in 
? call for five alarms and fire departments from the three 
cities responded immediately. Much time was saved be- 
cause it would have taken minutes to get the station by 
telephone if one happened to be handy. 

HiIldx>rough also furnishes similar service to the trouble 
shooters of the Pacific Gas and Elcctnc Company in the 
tn-cir>- area. Tliese trouhlcshcwters have two-way radio 
equipped cats and thej' can get to a place where a break 
down has occurred -with the least delay. 

One of the inno\'anons introduced bj' Chief Wisnom 
ii his watch hst. All residents of Hiiyxirough are advised 
to notify- the Pohcc Department if thc>' arc iea^Tng for 
a vacation or for other reasons. They are told ■when they 
notify the Department to give the date of their departure 
ai'.d the tune the>' expect to return; to have all newspaper 
deliveries stopped; have the milk man discontinue leaving 
milk at the house, and to make arrangements to have their 
mail sent elsewhere during their absence. The day the 
resident leaves Hillsborough his house is given the closest 
attention. Durtng the day hours cruising officers take 
frequent looks to see if things are okeh. They remove 
papers and milk if it has been left and they also take 
diarge of t^ mail which is held at the poHce statian 
until the absent family returns. 

The night men get out of their cars at different hours, 
throw Hghts on the house, go into the 3'ards and trj' all 
doors and windows on the lower floors. 

It IS a service that is highly appreaated by the people 
of Hillsborough as it gives them a feeling of relief from 
proBi'lers and burglars who take advantage of people 
being away from their homes for any length of time, and 
■who leave many telltale evidences of thar absence. 

The officei^ on ezch watch makes a detailed report of 
his action in watching the temporary untenanted home. 
If any one happens to be about the place, day or night 
they investigate him, and as often happens it is a gardner 
or some other help who is foUonnng his line of duty. 

During the last fiscal year Hillsborough had permits 
i»ued for the building of homes totalling $1,930,030. 

But one major crime was reported during last year. It 
was an $18,000 job h>- a domestic employed m one of 
liic prEtentious homes. The domestic Lillian Labode, 
took it on the lam, but 1 1 months later she was picked 
up in Oakland and brought to the county jail at Red- 
■wood City. She was tried and convicted and sent to tiie 
woman's prison at Tehacepri. 

There hasn't been a major crime in Hillsborough this 
year.

CHIEF COLLINS OF REDWOOD CITY 

(Continued from page 18) 

Judge McAuliife is married, his wife's maiden name 
being Miss Florence Schweikert. The couple have three 
children two daughters and a son, and the family takes 
part in all civic activities of Redwood City. 

Judge McAuliffe's record of being elected to a judicial 
office four times without any opposition is a mighty good 
omen that he will have no one to oppose him when his 
present term expires in 1950. 

Judge Thorpe was born in Redwood City and after 
going through the public schools he joined the Police 
Department in August, 1924. While a police officer he 
took to the study of law, going through the night course 
at the city's high school, one of his classmates being 
Justice of the Peace McAuliffe. He was admitted to 
practice in 1934. 

In 1945 he resigned from the Police Department and 
joined the staff of District Attorney Gilbert Ferrell. 

Laft July when Judge McAuliffe was given a full time 
job as a county justice he was appointed Judge of the 
city court. He is eminently popular with the law en- 
forcement officers because his experience as one of them 
gives him an understanding of crime that one not in 
possession of this experience lacks. 

When a pohceman he had the rank of Sergeant and 
had charge of traffic, and during the war years he headed 
the air raid wardens, looked after aliens and did other 
important civilian defense work. He is married and there 
are three children in the family, two girls and a boy.

I SAN CARLOS POLICE DEPARTMENT 

'I (Cojitimied from page 19) 

-r clearing of these three cases ought to serve to others 
with criminal ideas that San Carlos is a mighty good spot 
'to keep out of if a crook wants to keep out of jail. 

San Carlos today has a population of some 10,000 peo- 
ple. There is an election coming up on June 10 for bond- 
ing the city for, among other things, improvement on the 
Cit\ Hall when an up-to-date section will be devoted to 
the police department. 

.Also the people of the town will vote on a proposition 
jof putting all city employees under civil service. That's 
something the police department should have had years 
.ago. 

' Mayor T. J. Kearns and Police Commissioner Truman 
-Waterman have seen that Chief Wheeler was able to add 
two new men to his department — they are Edward Betten- 
court and Charles Blake — this year. 

The police department now has three two-way radio- 
equipped cars and one motorcycle. 

A new feature of the department is the installation of a 
Desk Sergeant — George Seeley. 

Sergeant Joseph Gravance is in charge of the newly- 
created job of night sergeant. 

A Bureau of Identification has been established under 
Sergeant Ldward Maillard.

LISTEN IN ON THE 
MONITOR BOARD 

"Police Department. Officer, my husband is awfully 
drunk — I want you to come and get him. What are you 
trying to do, you fresh cop; never mind where I live — 

just come and get him." 

* * * 

"Police Department. I want my lost dog found. I 
just lost him and I want the Police Department to find 
him. I am sure if they watch the butcher shops they 
will find him as he is awfully fond of meat. He is a 
small yellow dog, very thin for his height, and has white 
ears and a black nose. I will not give my address." 

* * * 

"Quick, Officers, there's a street on a dhronk down here. 
Yes, Officer. I mean there's a mon on the sthreet. I 
mean there's a dhronk, shee— Oh, send a cop to Mission 
and Dembarcadero. Always dey toldt me the cops were 
dombnk." # * * 

"Police. Quick. This is an emergency case. You ask 
me where. Well, I tell you — the man has only an overcoat 
on and he is playing in the mud out here at Islais Creek 
bridge. Officer; Did you ever have the cold shivers 
yourself?" * * * 

"Have you found my boy? No, I didn't report him to 
the police as missing. He has been going to sea but always 
comes home a few days after a trip. Well, I'm telling 
you now that he is missing, and as you are so inquisitive 

I will tell you he is 37." 

* * * 

"How much do you charge for getting a cat down out 
of a tree? No, he is not in the tree yet, but he is sitting 
on the fence watching a bird — and the tree is tall." 

* * * 

"Police Department. There is a cave-in on 19th Avenue 
near the Sigmund Stern Playground. It's dangerous for 
automobiles. A citizen is standing there warning people 
and a Police Officer should be getting wet instead of him." 

* * * 

"Will you please send an officer out here? My husband 
is drunk. And please leave it out of the newspapers." 

"Officer, would you call Mission -— and inform the 
people that their dog is on the front steps and his howls 
are keeping all the neighborhood awake. No — don't send 

a radio car. Just phone that number." 

* * * 

"Pohce Department. Give me the Potrero Station. I 
want to speak to the officer on the telephone there. What 
—use Sutter 2030 for personal calls? Okay— I'll call 
that number now. Gimme my nickel back."

CHIEF BELLONI OF SOUTH CITY 

( ConUnued from page 1 5 ) 
for many years past. With plenty of land available for 
any iund of industry, and not at metropolitan frontage 
costs, coupled with good railroad service, easy accessibility 
to ocean shipping and good highway it is no trouble on 
selling a concern who wants a site to start or to continue 
J his business. 

Healy-Tibbetts the big San Francisco construction firm, 

has moved to South San Francisco, settling in a section 

of the old shipyards. Ken Royce, concrete manufacturer, 

has a big plant in South San Francisco. A San Francisco 

Laundry is moving to the city. In fact ten concerns are 

I moving in from the big city to the north, because of 

I lack of acreage for their growing business. They find 

in South San Francisco the necessary space for their plants. 

Chief Belloni has now in his Police Department 15 

men, one new officer having been added since the first 

of the year, and three more have been budgeted for the 

fiscal year which starts July 1 . 

The roster of the Department now is, besides the Chief: 

Sergeant A. Terragno, V. Bianchini, A Rodindi, J. 

[Bildhauer, W. Whipple, M. Lamuth, M. Blandini, S. 

«Stagnaro, D. Lombardi, V. Maffei, L. Anderson, W. 

fRidenour, E. Cortez, R. Canziani. 

^ Like other cities throughout California South San Fran- 
j Cisco has installed parking meters. Three hundred have 
[been permanently placed through the business section.

BURLINGAME'S POLICE DEPARTMENT 

(Continued from page 14) 
Police Department, a bureau to handle tickets put on 
cars for breaking the meter laws. A violator can, within 
24 hours after getting a ticket for violating the parking 
meter law, appear before this young lady and deposit as 
bail a sum that would equal the fine set forth for the 
offense. Then the Judge declares the bail forfeited, the 
violator is thus saved a trip to the city court, when some 
times he might have hours to wait till his case comes up. 
Mrs. Emma Ryan is the young lady detailed by the Judge 
to handle the receiving of cash bail. 

Chief Theuer says that this plan cleared up over 1000 
delinquent cases since it was put into effect. About 800 
people who forget to put the necessary money into the 
meters take advantage of this plan. 

Another idea that gives added safety to people crossing 
El Camino Real is the detailing of three special officers 
to handle traffic on Sundays. As is generally known about 
all the Churches in Burlingame front on this teeming 
highway and it has become a hazardous undertaking for 
people to go to places of worship. This with five officers 
assigned to five school crossings has had a splendid effect 
in lessening speeding and reckless driving, and lowering 
traffic accidents. These officers have under them 125 
young folks — members of the Junior Traffic Patrol. 

In the operation of his Department, Chief Theuer has 
Captain John I. Hartnett in charge of investigations, 
radio, bureau of identification and he does all the picture 
taking. His duties have mounted so high that the Chief 
is making an effort to get an assistant for the Captain. 

Lieutenant Lawrence Furio has charge of the day shift 
in the office and takes care of the making of details, re- 
ceiving reports, assigning personnel and takes the finger- 
prints of people arrested.

Mrs. E. LaBoda is the Department stenographer and 
she takes all the reports presented by the members of the 
force and types them for the police records. 

As an indication of the amount of business the Bur- 
lingame Police Department transacts one has but to look 
at the April reports. 

List month 904 arrests were made for traffic law viola- 
tions and $1700 in fines collected from the offenders. 

There were 23 criminal arrests mostly for burglary. 
The loss from this crime was $3000 for Burlingame, but 
the arrests brought about the recovery of $4000 in prop- 
erty. This added property was stolen outside the city 
but was found on the men brought in by Burlingame 
police. 

The Department has to investigate 40 traffic accidents 
for the month. 

Captain Hartnett now has 8,791 live finger prints in 
his files. 

The six patrol cars and two motorcycles get but little 
rest each 24 hours of the day, for they are on the go 
most of that time. 

The annual inspection, the second held since Chief 
Theuer took over was held on January 7. It brought out 
many people and has caused the Police Department to 
make plans to have the next one participated in by the 
Fire Department and the Junior Traffic Patrol. It is 
plinned to be held in the ball park and that a big celebra- 
tion be made of the event.

ANNUAL S. F. POLICE BALL 

The annual concert and ball of the San Francisco Police 
Widows' and Orphans' Aid Association, held in Civic 
Auditorium the evening of April 19, was the biggest event 
ever held in the over half century's existence of the organi- 
zation. It was bigger for the entertainment afforded and 
the sale of tickets went over the $100,000 mark, a sum that 
will make easier the giving of relief to widows and orphans 
of deseased police officers. 

Captain Joseph M. Walsh deserves great credit for the 
success of the year's entertainment and his various com- 
mittees are also entitled to a big hand for the part they 
played in making it such an outstanding success. 

Governor and Mrs. Earl Warren, Mayor and Mrs. 
Roger D. Lapham, Chief and Mrs. Charles W. Dullea 
led the grand march that started the dancing. 

Chief Dullea introduced many notable guests and pre- 
sented meritorious service awards to 100 officers who dur- 
ing the year had performed outstanding service. He also 
presented to Officer Henry Smith, president of the Associa- 
tion last year, the annual gift made to retiring presidents. 
Officer Henry Smith can feel the success of the show is a 
fitting event for his coming retirement from the depart- 
ment. 

Twenty-eight men who served in the department passed 
on during 1946.

Menio Park Handling Traffic Troubles 



Since Chief Jack O. Yount was appointed to take 
cliarge of the Menlo PoHce Department he has been able 
t(i increase the number of men on his force from five 
t(i eight, and will get another one after July. 

Chief Young now has two automobiles and one motor- 
c>c!e equipped with two-way radio. Not many higher 
bracket crimes occur in Menlo Park with over 7000 people 
living in the limits of the busy Peninsula city, which 
has grown in area as well as in the number of peole, are 
all law abiding. Recently the population of Menlo Park 
has been increased by the establishment of Stanford Vil- 

40, which was formerly Dibble U. S. Hospital for injured 
members of our great war forces. There are 3400 people 
living in this village, and the adults are mostly Stanford 
students. They give no trouble to the police and take 
pride in keeping their area spic and span. 

However, there is one thing that keeps the Police De- 
partment busy day in and day out. That is traffic. With 
(from 15,000 to 20,000 automobiles passing through the 
town daily it is a full time job for the police officers to 
L-p down accidents and allow the great throngs of shop- 
pers who patronize the business houses which front on 
El Camino Real, to get to and from the stores. 

Law enforcement is the answer to Chief Yount, and 
get an idea of how strong he is going along this line 
It might be cited that there were 411 traffic law violation 
! citations handed out the ast month. 

A motorcycle officer is on duty 24 hours of the day, 
and the boys in patrol cars look after the traffic law 
violators, as well as other law enforcing work. 

To give shoppers a break in parking and safety, there 
IS now ready to start July 1 a project that is unique in 
this state. In a block on each side of Santa Cruz avenue 
there will be built a public parking center back of the 
buildings on the west side of El Camino Real. 

Entrance to this center is made from both ends of the 
block, by a 30 foot driveway, which leads to the parking 
area. The block to the north of Santa Cruz Avenue wall 
accommodate 110 cars and the other block 80 cars, and 
they can be parked free. Everyone is behind the idea 
and it will do away with installation of parking meters. 

Another improvement to better the traffic flow is the 
installation of signal lights at the intersection of El Camino 
Real and Ravenwood. A count made by the Police De- 
partment last December shows that over 17,500 passed this 
crossing in a 24-hour period. 

An under pass is contemplated that will extend the 
Willow Road to a direct route to the Dumbarton Bridge 
from El Camino Real. 

One thing the people of Menlo Park are fighting is the 
establishment by the California Motor Vehicle Depart- 
ntient's 35 miles per hour speed limit along El Camino 
R-eal, including through cities. They want a 25-mile an 
lour limit, pointing out that a grammar school is on the 



main highway and the higher speed endangers children 
attending this school. 

Chief Yount "s personnel includes the following : 
Captain George Potter, Sergeant Joseph Ferriera, Of- 
ficers Frank Roach, James Mondakas, Tony Campo, Bert 
Herring. Alice Tucker is secretary to the department and 
handles the radio calls.

Chief Excell of Mt.View Has Fine Record 



For fifteen years A. H. Excell has been a member of 
che Mountain View Police Department, and nine of those 
years he has been Chief. During those 15 years he has 
seen the population of his city advance from 3200 people 
to over 6000. He has seen Mountain View become the 
center for upward of 20,000 people from surrounding 
areas who find the little city a swell place to shop and 
find clean entertainment of various kinds. 

Through this decade and a half he has seen the city 
policed by a force of officers, never more than four besides 
the Chief. When he was made Chief he had but three 
men, now he has four and a secretary, with prospects 
good for an additional patrolman. 

In view of this small force and the great number of 
people who continually pour into the mile square area 
of Mountain View the record for law enforcement is 
something any town could be proud. True there are some 
robberies, some burglaries, some automobile stealing and 
a bad check floated now and then but a perusal of the 
records of the Police Department will show that all these 
h?ve been cleared up by the action of the Police Depart- 
ment in making arrests and securing convictions. 

Chief Excell frankly states that there is an increase in 
crime of the higher brackets in his jurisdiction, as he 
anticipated there would be following the close of the war, 
and he is well prepared to meet this increased with his 
small force of officers. 

Juvenile delinquency is on the increase he says, and 
he attributes this increase, too, to the war years when 
parents rushed to various jobs engaged in making war 
materials for the defense of the country, getting high 
wages and leaving their children to shift as best they 
could for themselves. This lack of parental control he 
states is reflected by the waywardness of the teen agers 
of today. 

Traffic is something that gives him much concern. While 
there have been no deaths from traffic accidents in many 
months, the number in which injuries and property dam- 
ages figure, is ever on the upgrade. It may well be seen 
why this condition exists in Mountain View. Each year 
Chief Excell and his men take counts of auto traffic at 
two points. One is Castro, at the Bank of America bank 
corner uptown, and the other at the entrance from El 
Camino Real. The police check every automobile enter- 
ing or leaving the city. 

The last count show that cars passed the uptown checked 
point at the rate of one every four seconds, and for a 12 
hour period 12,000 cars were checked. 

At the El Camino Real point there were 13,860 cars 
entering and going out of the town, 45 per cent of this 
number were making both in and out trips. 

His parking problems have been somewhat eased by 
the installation of 240 parking meters and he has two men 
regularly assigned to look after moving traffic regulations. 

All police cars and motorcycles are equipped with 



two-way radio serviced by Palo Alto Police Department. 

Through the war years Chief Excell made arrangements 
with the various industrial plants and packing houses to 
have their night watchmen ring in to the Police Depart- 
ment. If a watchman failed to ring, the Police went to 
the place at once to investigate. Since the war's end the 
owners of these plants have asked that the arrangement 
be continued, as this added ring-in to that of the respective 
places gives greater assurance of help if a crime is com- 
mitted. Chief Excell has agreed to continue this added 
ring-in. 

Chief Excell who came to Mountain View in 1925 
from South Dakota where he had followed farming and 
carpentering, is pretty well sold on his adopted city and 
from the time, 15 years ago, when Dr. Stanbury per- 
suaded him to join the Police Department he has given 
his energy and ability to improving his knowledge of law 
enforcement and he rates high with the chief law enforce- 
ment officials of this area of the state. 

He hopes to see civil service adopted in Mountain 
View for the Police Department, with provisions made 
for adequate pensions on retirement. 

At the present time his force of officers are : 

Sergeant Arthur Neilsen, Kenneth Hallmart, Edward 
Anderson and Edwin Miller. 

Miss Juanita Bautista is secretary.
